A company that once proposed a medical marijuana dispensary and grow facility on Adamston Road is suing Brick Township, arguing its new proposal should be given automatic approval.
In the lawsuit, attorney Dennis M. Galvin said his client, 385 Adamston LLC, has been denied its right to convert a former bank on the 6.5-acre lot into an indoor farm facility.
Earlier this year, 385 Adamston LLC proposed growing lettuce at the site, after public opposition to growing marijuana, along with a lack of a state license to dispense medical marijuana, spurred the company to shift direction.
The company had previously proposed growing, processing and distributing medical marijuana on the site, because of the bank's existing security features. Before deciding on lettuce, 385 Adamston's leadership also proposed growing industrial hemp.
