MANSFIELD, MA — Mansfield could soon see its first recreational marijuana dispensary. The Select Board approved a community host agreement with Releaf Alternative for a 3,200 square-foot recreational dispensary at 321 School St., across from the Mansfield Crossing shopping plaza.

Two weeks ago, the business presented its plans before the Select Board. And on Wednesday, the board voted 4 to 1 in favor of allowing Releaf to move forward in seeking approval from the Town’s planning board at a public hearing, the Sun Chronicle reported. The agreement grants Mansfield 3 percent of the company’s sales revenue and requires Releaf to make hiring Mansfield residents a priority. The company is projected to create 10 to 15 jobs, according to CEO Connor McLaughlin.
