Poland will hold its first cannabis licensing lottery from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Town Office conference room.
At this year’s town meeting April 6, Poland residents voted to allow manufacturing facilities, testing facilities, registered caregiver retail stores for medical cannabis, cultivation facilities, product manufacturing facilities and stores for adult-use cannabis.
The authorization and regulation of cannabis production and sales will follow state regulations and the town’s comprehensive land-use code.
There will be four lotteries, according to officials. In each, Poland residents will be drawn first. If there are remaining licenses, there will be a drawing for nonresidents.
