While an effort to legalize marijuana in the Garden State went up in smoke earlier this year, it’s still been an eventful summer for pot in Hudson County. Just last month, we broke the news about a medical marijuana manufacturing facility that’s coming to Jersey City and now a building near Hoboken’s main transit hub could be getting a little “greener,” so to speak.
Earlier this month, Secaucus-based Harmony Dispensary submitted an application to the city’s planning board to revamp space at 95 Hudson Street into what would be their second medical marijuana dispensary. Owner Shaya Brodchandel appears to have signed a lease for the property, which spans over 5,000 square feet and was previously home to several doctor’s offices.
Harmony’s website says they “employ the latest Controlled Environment Agriculture technology to produce the most consistent, pure, clinically-effective medical marijuana.” Their application, which was heard by the board’s subdivision and site plan committee on August 14, is looking to open a “state approved medical cannabis dispensary” at the building, completely gutting and redesigning the interior to meet Harmony’s needs.
