A Secaucus-based company called Harmony Dispensary expects to open a marijuana dispensary near the Hoboken train station by the end of the calendar year, but two other companies hope to come to that area as well — and now, one is suing the other.
Law 360 reported on Sept. 24 that Terrapin, a cannabis company that also wants to open a dispensary near the train station, is accusing Harmony of "bypassing New Jersey's vetting process" and wants Harmony's approval reconsidered.
Terrapin and Harmony's sites would be a block from each other. Terrapin, which first announced its intentions in a press release Sept. 2, hopes to open at 86 River St. This is a block from the proposed Harmony site at 93-95 Hudson St.
Under New Jersey's Compassionate Care Act, marijuana restrictions were revised last year, allowing greater access to "alternative medical treatment facilities."
Harmony Dispensary, which has a headquarters in Secaucus, N.J., applied for the retail-only Hoboken site in 2018 after new regulations allowed existing licensed alternative medical treatment facilities to open "satellite" locations.
