Voters narrowly reject retail marijuana


Voters narrowly rejected retail marijuana in Hull today. The unofficial results were posted less than 10 minutes after the Memorial School polls closed at 8 p.m. 

The tallies posted by Town Clerk Lori West were:
On Question 1: the Yes vote – to prohibit retail pot – was 1,010. The No vote – which would have permitted sales – was 856. There were 4 blanks.

On Question 2, which had the same effect, to be articulated in a zoning bylaw as opposed to a general bylaw, the Yes vote was 1,027. The No vote was 833, blanks 10.

The Times will publish a complete report of today's activity in Thursday's paper.
