York residents voted on a proposed ordinance that outlines rules for medical marijuana caregivers who grow the drug at commercial facilities.

Results were not available by press time Tuesday.

Voters were asked to enact rules limiting where medical marijuana caregivers can grow their plants. The zoning changes would regulate marijuana as a land use, restrict caregivers growing in commercial settings to a section along the Route 1 corridor, and prevent more than one grower from using the same lot. They also would require a public approval process and establish a business licensing requirement to monitor ongoing consistency with the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program, according to the proposed ordinance.

The restrictions would not apply to caregivers growing medical marijuana in their own homes.
