Oliver Curme at a Tuesday zoning board hearing said the dispensary would draw “undesirable elements” who would end up “scaring off the clientele” of Newbury Street’s high-end shops and restaurants.
The comments shocked both opponents and supporters of the dispensary.
Curme said he was so over the top he thought people would understand
Curme told New England Cable News he used satire to mock dispensary opponents, and said he actually supports it.
Curme, who lives around the corner from the site, said he was so over the top he thought people would understand, and apologized if anyone misinterpreted him.
The dispensary was approved.
