For now, at least, the out-of-the-way facility in Egg Harbor Township is the closest location to buy legal cannabis for Cape May County residents, although that’s likely to change. The Borough Commission in West Cape May has supported two cannabis business proposals, a necessary step for those applying for licenses from the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission.
The governing body supported the license application for Potent Petal LLC and Shorehouse Canna, LLC, according to Mayor Carol Sabo.
“It’s part of the application packet. You need a letter of support from the municipality,” Sabo said. The resolutions state that the proposed businesses are in the areas approved by West Cape May for cannabis sales.
The borough decided against allowing cannabis sales on Broadway, the main commercial district through town, in part out of concern for traffic delays. Cannabis licenses are limited to the commercial zones along Sunset Boulevard and Park Boulevard.
