The town of Maplewood has voted to allow the sale of recreational marijuana. It comes less than two days before legal cannabis can be sold across New Jersey
Apothecarium Dispensary Maplewood has been selling medical marijuana in town for almost a year. The owners are getting ready for Thursday. Workers expect long lines, crowds and curious onlookers.
The facility is run by TerrAscend, a multistate company.
Maplewood Mayor Dean Dafis said that he wanted to make sure that the business was ready to handle sales to the public.
"There never been a question about whether or not they would be good for Maplewood. I think they've proven that. We just wanted to make sure that as they expand they're going to be committed to our success as a community and meet all of our conditions,” the mayor said.
