Once New Jersey officials green-light recreational, adult-use marijuana sales, Phillipsburg’s medical dispensary has the town’s approval to open its doors to weed users and the cannabis-curious ages 21 and older.
Town council on Tuesday gave final approval to an ordinance prohibiting recreational cannabis businesses in Phillipsburg, except at The Apothecarium that opened last November at 55 S. Main St.
New Jersey voters in a ballot referendum last November approved legalizing recreational, adult-use marijuana. Gov. Phil Murphy in February signed the legalization legislation into law, and a commission has been working to hammer out regulations before retail sales can begin.
