When weed was made legal here in New Jersey, one of the tenets of the confusing law is that towns were given the option to decide if they wanted to ban dispensaries within their borders. And they had a deadline in which to do so.
Princeton, which prides itself on being open-minded and progressive tried to be one of those towns that was going to allow a dispensary. But in the end, like a lot of towns in New Jersey with the “not in my backyard” mentality, Princeton reversed course last week.
According to a report by TapInto Princeton, which extensively covered a town meeting last Tuesday, although Princeton voters overwhelmingly approved the use of recreational marijuana in a 2020 referendum, there was apparently enough vocal opposition from the minority who were against its legalization to warrant tabling the dispensary idea.
