Some small CT towns consider opting out of allowing marijuana sales
Just a day after recreational marijuana was legalized in Connecticut, some local towns and cities say they don't want it to be sold in their community.
Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi says he's taking immediate steps to begin the process of banning marijuana sales in the town before they become legal 10 months from now.

He is asking the Board of Selectmen for approval to draft a letter for the next meeting, asking the planning and zoning commission for a regulation to prohibit retail sale of cannabis in Ridgefield.
Cities and towns also have the option of deciding the issue by voter referendum.
