Walsh now sort of says he won't fight tooth and nail against pot dispensaries

A couple weeks ago, the Globe quoted Hizzona as saying he was "dead set" against medical-marijuana dispensaries and that "I have made it very clear to the state that I don’t want these dispensaries in our city."

But that's not what he wrote in an online discussion on Reddit today:

To be clear: I support the law and the will of the voters. My concern is the applications - there was incorrect information on some of the applications and I simply want to make sure that everything is in order. I know that this is the law and that medical marijuana will eventually come to Boston.

However, he didn't answer any followup questions about the quotes in the Globe article or whether this means he's now actually supporting dispensaries opening in Boston.

Marajuana legalization across

By on

Marajuana legalization across the board is coming. Let's make sure boston is on the right side of history and hopefully get's a jump on providing world class weed to the tax paying weed smoking masses. For the record, I don't smoke, but it's high time anything you can grow from seed in your back yard should be legal. Let's create new jobs and new business, new tax reveunue and damn good safe weed.

If grandma can get $200 for her antique collection, can I get some cash for the unopened oregano that's been stashed in the back of my pantry for 10 years?

Wow, that's professional level backtracking. Surely he was only worried about typos on their applications.
