The Zoning Commission approved a zoning change in a 4 to 2 vote which would allow dispensaries as long as they have the needed state permits and licenses and follow town rules.

Dispensaries would be allowed in commercial zones along West Main Street, Boston Post Road, and Flanders Road under special permits.

So far, no dispensaries have asked to open in East Lyme.

Some town leaders would have prefered to wait until there was interest before changing zoning rules.
