Many municipalities throughout New Jersey have adopted cannabis business prohibition ordinances until the state's Cannabis Regulatory Commission finalizes its rules.
Chatham Township has fine-tuned its business prohibition ordinance with a supplement for "police powers."
The township had its marijuana business prohibition rules on the books in April, banning all types of cannabis businesses from operating within its borders. Many municipalities are waiting until there's more guidance from the Cannabis Regulatory Commission on business operation rules, before allowing any types of cannabis businesses.
Chatham Township's supplement now adds to its "Police Regulations" section of its code books, with a special category "Operation and Licensing of Cannabis Businesses Prohibited."
