Collingswood Mayor Jim Maley said any type of cannabis business is prohibited from opening on Haddon Avenue under current borough zoning law.
Moreover, Maley said a cannabis-related restaurant “wouldn’t be top of my list.
“We’re looking to take some baby steps” into the industry, the mayor said.
Presently, only two cannabis businesses are working their way through the official channels in the borough: Circe Therapeutics, Inc., which is planning to open a medical dispensary in the former Egbert Express building on Route 130, and Crucial Wellness, LLC, which would be situated at the Collingswood Diner.
Crucial Wellness has already fulfilled the borough requirements for a letter of support, which was adopted by resolution at the May 2 Collingswood municipal government meeting.
The passage of that letter allows the business to proceed with its Class V license application at the state level.
