ROCKLAND — Rockland voters will be met with four municipal referendum advisory questions pertaining to marijuana when visiting the polls for the November election. 

Advisory questions are defined by Ballotpedia.org as “a type of ballot measure in which citizens vote on a non-binding question.” The website notes advisory questions “will not result in a new, changed or rejected law or constitutional amendment” and “symbolically makes heard the general opinion of the voting population in regard to the issue at hand.” 

Presently, there are four applicants attempting to establish medical marijuana facilities in Rockland. 

Advisory Question 1: Do you support allowing adult use marijuana stores in the City? 

Advisory Question 2: Do you support allowing adult use marijuana stores in the downtown area of the City? 

Advisory Question 3: Do you support allowing medical marijuana stores in the City? 

Advisory Question 4: Do you support allowing medical marijuana stores in the downtown area of the city?
