As New Jersey’s residents get ready to vote on marijuana legalization later this year, a Secaucus-based company has finally been given the green light to open a dispensary in a building near the city’s PATH station.
Jersey Digs first broke the news about plans to bring a medical marijuana facility to the Mile Square City last summer. Months of discussions ensued about the local regulation of cannabis before the city eventually approved an ordinance in June clarifying its rules on medicinal pot.
Under the regulations, a Medical Cannabis Review Board has been established and a 2% medical marijuana city tax will be implemented. Hoboken’s ordinance allows a total of three dispensaries throughout the city and the planning board will need to review and approve any marijuana-related applications that emerge.
