Members of the Borough Council are moving to amend regulations regarding cannabis businesses that may eventually operate in Freehold Borough by adding medical cannabis dispensaries as an approved business.
During a meeting on Jan. 18, council members introduced an ordinance that will, if adopted, amend the borough’s existing cannabis ordinance to include alternative treatment centers which dispense medical cannabis to qualified individuals. The alternative treatment centers will be combined with cannabis retailers and follow the same regulations.
A public hearing on the ordinance is scheduled for Feb. 14. The governing body may adopt the ordinance that evening.
