A recent decision allowing cannabis growing and processing in an agricultural area here has reaped a lawsuit in state court against the business and the Vineland Zoning Board.
The lawsuit was filed on March 22 on behalf of Donald and Sharon Money. They are longtime residents of the 200 block of Old Forest Road, not far from the project site at 3192 North West Boulevard.
Donald Money also was among numerous residents testifying against the project at its Zoning Board hearing on Jan. 19. The board, with one dissent, voted to give applicant 3192 NJGCCP LLC a use variance.
The applicant that received the variance is a real estate corporation in Illinois. It has the Boulevard property under a purchasing contract. It would lease it to an affiliated entity, Cannect Wellness of New Jersey LLC, if it eventually receives operating licenses from New Jersey.
