Mayor Says Now Pot Is Up To Voters

West Springfield  Mayor Will Reichelt's veto on a ban of recreational marijuana  businesses in the town is being overridden. 

The vote from Town Council  was 8-to-1 on Monday. 

West Springfield  was one of the municipalities to vote against legalizing recreational  pot in 2016. 

The proposed ordinance was for two dispensaries to be  erected in the town's industrial zone. 

Reichelt told reporters last night that city councilors could place a referendum on the ballot so voters can decide the issue.  

Or citizens could go out and get signatures to force a question as well.
