The Bordentown Township Planning Board unanimously gave the go-ahead for a medical marijuana dispensary to be built on Route 130 at its meeting on Thursday night.
Curaleaf, a Massachusetts-based company that serves more than 350,000 registered patients in twenty-three states around the country, got preliminary and final site plan approval on its proposal to open a location at 191 Route 130 North.
Curaleaf will modify the existing site, currently operated by Stony Brook Sew and Vacuums, into a one-story, 9,315 square foot structure from which the dispensary will operate.
The Bordentown site will be for retail sales only, and that cultivation, manufacturing and packaging would not occur there. Curaleaf executives have said that the product delivered to the Bordentown site would be completely secure, packaged and in final-sales format, and that the company meets and even exceeds standards of procedures set by the state of New Jersey.
