“The six-month pilot allows the city to assess the impact of the extended hours and make a determination at the end of the pilot whether to allow the continued extended hours. Other marijuana retail businesses in Framingham will be afforded the same six-month pilot once they have been operating satisfactorily for six months and have passed a security review by the Framingham Police Department,” wrote Kezer.
