Mayor Matt Scott – “We have been thinking about it as a township committee. Voters in New Jersey overwhelmingly passed the mandate. We are following what the legislature is going to do,” he said. “Our township lawyer reached out to the township committee right after and stated that until the final bill comes out we won’t know how it is going to affect us.”
As far as retail recreational marijuana in Cranbury, Scott stated that the township still has the 2018 ordinance, which is not going anywhere.
“There is not going to be retail marijuana in town, which is fine. We have a very successful medical marijuana dispensary in Cranbury,” Scott said. “Most people who are going to be setting up shop to sell are not going to do it in an area where there is pushback. If a potential recreational marijuana grower came before the township committee and asked if we would reconsider the ordinance, I would be open to it. I am not completely opposed to it. I would want to hear what they had to say. I suspect that this scenario is highly unlikely.”
