Marijuana establishments that are licensed by the state would be permitted to operate within Cinnaminson under new legislation that was introduced Monday night.
Cinnaminson Township Committee introduced a proposed ordinance to allow cannabis establishments as a permitted use in the township when it met Monday night.
It also introduced a proposal setting the amount each establishment would be taxed, based on their license. The public hearings and final votes on each proposal will take place July 19.
If approved at that time, state licensed cannabis cultivators, manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, retailer, or delivery services would be permitted to operate in the township as a conditional use.
The township took steps to ensure recreational marijuana isn't used in public, including a provision in the proposed ordinance that explicitly states, "public consumption of cannabis, including that prescribed by a licensed clinician in accordance with State regulation, is not permitted unless ingested at a state and locally licensed consumption area."
