Notwithstanding any law or special law to the contrary, any city, town, district, school district or regional school district that has regulated smoking on public property within such city, town, district, school district or regional school district shall be deemed to have prohibited smoking of any marijuana as defined in Chapter 94 of the general laws, including medical use of marijuana, unless such city, town, district, school district or regional school district has affirmatively voted to allow smoking of medical marijuana on their properties. Prohibition of smoking marijuana, including medical use of marijuana on public property, shall not be deemed to be discrimination due to a medical condition under the laws of the commonwealth.
