The Board of Trustees in Carbondale is looking to lower the town’s cap for marijuana grow operations in hopes of addressing complaints about the smell.
The Board voted this week to cut back on the number of licenses for recreational grows in the town from five to three.
The town has already issued four licenses and all four of those businesses will be grandfathered into the new policy. However, if one of those businesses fails, the town will reduce the number of licenses.
Town officials have received a multiple complaints that some of the marijuana operations are concentrated too closely together and generating a powerful stench.
