WINDSOR — Residents in Windsor were among several communities in Vermont to “opt in” and voted to allow a cannabis dispensary to operate in town when the sale of recreational marijuana becomes legal next year.

The measure passed Tuesday on a 301-240 vote, and a related measure dealing with “integrated licensees” who could act as cultivators and retailers passed 312-231.

Ryan Palmer, a former Windsor police officer who now works for the Ludlow, Vt., police department, won an open three-year seat on the Selectboard with 354 votes, outpacing Paul Woodman, 143, and Eric Saltonstall, 29.

Jeffrey Johnson won a two-year term with 296 votes, defeating Alicia Houske, 134, and Tom Dunn, 89.

Former Selectboard member Michael McNaughton was unopposed for a vacancy on the Selectboard that expires in March 2022.

All spending measures passed handily, including the $5.58 million budget for municipal operations.
