A majority of Wilbraham voters voted “No” on Question 4, which legalized recreational marijuana last November.

“This seems like a really hot issue everywhere right now, it’s funny that it’s hitting home,”Wilbraham resident Taylor Foy said. “But yeah, there’s gonna be people talking about safety, money. Everything is gonna come up.”

Wilbraham residents will also have the opportunity to vote on a ban on commercial recreational marijuana sales in a town-wide election Saturday.
