In the News: Cannabis Control Commission timeline discussion; Boston Herald sold; Hopkinton waiting on plastic bag ban

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"With the chorus of critics calling for the Cannabis Control Commission to pump the brakes on its rollout of an expansive legal marijuana industry growing louder, the top marijuana regulator said Tuesday the agency will debate later this month whether it should license only certain types of marijuana businesses to open July 1 and wait to license others. 
Gov. Charlie Baker, House Speaker Robert DeLeo and others have called on the CCC to scale back the industry envisioned in its draft regulations -- which includes marijuana cafes, delivery-only marijuana businesses, and the ability for establishments like cinemas and massage parlors to offer limited marijuana products -- at least until an initial retail market takes hold. 
“We’re absolutely going to talk about that and if we do decide to not issue certain categories of licenses on day one we’re not going to leave them open-ended, we’ll say ‘here’s our timeline for subsequent rollout,’ ” CCC Chairman Steven Hoffman said Tuesday when asked if the commission would consider a phased rollout of legal cannabis businesses. “But we have not made that decision, we are going to have that conversation.”

"The second biggest newspaper in Boston is on track to be sold for $11.9 million. 
A subsidiary of Digital First, owner of the Denver Post and hundreds of other publications across the country, made the winning bid for the Boston Herald at a closed-door auction held at the downtown Boston offices of the Herald’s bankruptcy attorney, Brown Rudnick, which confirmed the bid selection to The Patriot Ledger on Tuesday night. The Boston Herald reported that the bid was for $11.9 million. 
Digital First was one of three companies to submit bids for the paper before a deadline Friday, including GateHouse Media, the owner of The Patriot Ledger. The company also owns the Lowell Sun and the Fitchburg Sentinel and Enterprise in Massachusetts.

"The town is waiting to see how a statewide plastic bag ban take shape before taking its own action. 
Board of Health member Jennifer Flanagan brought up the idea to ban plastic bags at stores in town about a year ago after hearing about such a ban passed in Natick. Last week, the board brought the discussion back up. 
“We are still in the research and review stage,” said Shaun McAuliffe, health director."

In the News: e-cigarettes increasing popular; Gatehouse Media to purchase Boston Herald

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"As e-cigarettes become increasingly popular among young people, they are beginning to come under heightened scrutiny. 
“A lot of kids don’t understand these are dangerous products and contain nicotine,” said Marc Hymovitz, director of government relations for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network of Massachusetts. 
In Massachusetts, vaping has become significantly more popular than smoking cigarettes among high school students. Using e-cigarettes is not called smoking — it is referred to as vaping — despite the similarities to traditional cigarettes. Unlike combustible cigarettes, however, vaping produces an aerosol vapor instead of a smoke. 
Nearly 24 percent of Massachusetts high school students reported currently using e-cigarettes or vape pens, according to a 2015 Department of Public Health survey. More than 44 percent reported ever trying vaping."

"Cancer is no longer a death sentence and shouldn’t be taboo”

Via the social media feeds, a good Franklin story to share:

Franklin resident Susan Rosen sat slumped on her couch in a quiet house — her two children were at school — and let the news sink in: She had stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. 
“I’m never going to be a grandmother,” she told her husband through sobs. 
But that was four years ago. Susan, now 52, no longer views incurable cancer as a death sentence. The local wife and mother is one of a growing number of people managing the disease as a chronic illness, thanks to new, less toxic treatments that are tailored to each patient’s needs. 
“Things are getting better every day in regards to treatments,” Susan said. “This is the best I’ve felt in years.”
