After Bridgeport’s zoning commission rejected a proposal on Monday to open a medical marijuana farm in a warehouse, Mayor Bill Finch is saying the commission is moving too slowly to promote economic growth.
Rob Schulter, of Fairfield, wants to take advantage of Connecticut's recent legalization of medical marijuana and grow and sell pot wholesale. The business would be located at $50 Hastings St., according to the Post.
The zoning board said there are too many unknowns and raised concerns about security and whether employees could steal the marijuana.
Finch said the pot farm is a legal use and that officials should make sure business plans will not stall.
The newspaper could not reach the zoning chairman for comment.
