By the time that Spring rolls around, Mount Laurel residents may have two local recreational cannabis dispensaries to choose from.
Lotus Dispensary, which is slated to take over the vacant former gas station at 1110 Rt. 73, could open as early as April or as late as June, owner Hursh Patel said.
"It will be very upscale," he said. "We want to revitalize the site."
Patel's company, Envision Group LLC, received its final approval from the state's Cannabis Regulatory Commission (CRC) on Thursday. Now, he said it just needs to get blueprints for the site blessed by the town's Planning Board, a process which he expects to happen quickly and smoothly.
