Founder and CEO of Middle Valley Partners, Sarah Trent, told the Raritan Borough Council Tuesday that her plan to open a medical marijuana dispensary progressed on the state level right before the holidays.
Trent said she is now working on a site plan application for the Raritan Borough Land Use Board.
Trent has been trying to establish a medical marijuana dispensary or alternative treatment center in the borough for nearly four years.
After her company applied for a medical cannabis dispensary permit from the state in 2019, they finally received a provisional award or conditional license from the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission on Dec. 7, 2021.
The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission awarded conditional licenses to 30 companies in 2021, including her company, Middle Valley Partners.
