The committee's special meeting, held Wednesday, was supposed to only feature a presentation by LivWell New Jersey for a medical marijuana facility with a standalone dispensary.
Three other companies heard about the meeting and made presentations to the committee during the general public discussion portion of the meeting.
The township is already host to one approved medical marijuana facility, Compassionate Care, near Delilah Road.
After hearing the presentations, the committee decided to provide each of the four companies with a letter of support, but their letters were contingent on each project successfully making it through all of the usual regulatory and approval processes.
"This (the letter) is a small piece of the puzzle," said Committeeman Frank Balles. "It would be great to have the ratable."
