Healey: Not Setting New Law By Delay

Attorney General Maura Healey is  defending her decision to allow some towns to extend marijuana  moratoriums without a community vote.  

Last week, Healey allowed  Mansfield to extend a temporary moratorium on pot businesses until June  of next year.  

That contradicts previous rulings by Healey's office that  moratoriums after this December are longer than reasonably necessary.  

 Healey says her ruling is not a statewide moratorium, saying it will not  lead to widespread bans by towns across the state.
