Have we seen enough zoning giveways to Big Drug Companies
and real estate corporations in Central and Kendall Squares, and in Cambridge??
(They're all gonna' "cure cancer," right???) 
How about treating those currently suffering from cancer, and from cancer "treatments"???
(Why will it have to take "nine months" to sort this out?)
You shouln't need a permit to grow a small amount of marijuana for medical use in your backyard.

Centers in any zoning district for a period of nine (9) months starting January 1, 2013, or

address these considerations consistent with statewide regulations and permitting
