York residents on Tuesday overwhelmingly passed a proposed ordinance outlining rules for medical marijuana caregivers who grow the drug at commercial facilities.

The final vote was 5,009 to 1,393.

The zoning changes regulate marijuana as a land use, restrict caregivers growing in commercial settings to a section along the Route 1 corridor, and prevent more than one grower from using the same lot. They also require a public approval process and establish a business licensing requirement to monitor compliance with the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program. The restrictions do not apply to caregivers growing medical marijuana in their own homes.
