South Brunswick has prohibited all classes of cannabis establishments from operating in the township, according to a new ordinance passed by the council. The new restriction received unanimous approval from the council, some of which voted to legalize recreational cannabis in the 2020 election.
The ordinance prohibits cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, whole sales, distribution, retail sales and delivery. South Brunswick Township will allow cannabis testing facilities in the community as defined by the state.
South Brunswick is one of several Middlesex County towns to ban the commercial sale and distribution of cannabis in the community. Others include South Amboy, Woodbridge, South River, Monroe, Piscataway, Sayreville, Old Bridge and East Brunswick.
