Is North Kingstown ready for a medical marijuana facility? Well, that depends on whom you ask.
At a special meeting Monday, members of the public and local elected officials got to express their support and/or concerns with two proposed "compassion centers" in North Kingstown and, judging from the meeting itself, they're split on whether the centers will do more harm than good.
At least that's the message in this week's Standard Times Newspaper as reporter Lindsay Olivier details what happened at that meeting. In addition, read all about the latest news coming out of the North Kingstown Town Council, where the future of the building that used to house Wickford Elementary School was discussed, and the North Kingstown School Committee, which began looking at the town's next budget.
And if that wasn't enough, this week's paper has got you covered up, down and around Exeter as we bring you in-depth details about the EWG School Committee's potential moving of the high school's graduation date, plus everything you need to know from Monday's Town Council meeting.
