OXFORD — An ad hoc committee on recreational marijuana wants residents to weigh in on prohibiting or regulating recreational marijuana in town.

The committee, which calls itself the Adult Use Marijuana Committee, was set up by the Board of Selectmen on Oct. 5, to review the need for an ordinance or regulations on retail marijuana establishments and social clubs, after Maine’s legalization of recreational marijuana last November.

The first meeting of the committee was held Oct. 18, when Town Manager Butch Asselin was appointed chairman.

The three-page survey, which is still in draft form, asks if the town should prohibit the establishment of all retail marijuana establishments, including cultivators, retail stores, manufacturers, lab testing facilities and social clubs.
