The county seat has joined the small number of New Jersey municipalities allowing retail sales of marijuana within its borders.
The Borough Council earlier this week passed an ordinance allowing a maximum of two marijuana shops in Flemington.
All council members voted in favor except for Jessica Hand who abstained.
During the public hearing, most residents who spoke were in favor of passing the measure. One resident spoke against, voicing concern over not knowing what state regulations will look like.
Other speakers voiced concerns over a 2% tax on marijuana shops. Some felt the tax would not bring much income to the borough, while others saw it conflicting with the state preventing a tax on medications.
Mayor Betsy Driver said that 71% of borough voters in November approved the statewide referendum calling for the legalization of marijuana for adults over 21.
