Plans are moving forward for the first medical marijuana dispensary, which eventually could be an adult-use marijuana store, to open in the borough.
Aunt Mary's Dispensary is scheduled to appear Dec. 6 before the borough Planning Board to receive minor site plan approval to open in a 5,200-square-foot space next to Panchero's in the Shoppes at Flemington off the Flemington Circle.
Aunt Mary's Dispensary, formerly known as Altus New Jersey, received approval to open the dispensary from the state Cannabis Regulatory Commission in October 2021. The Borough Council passed a resolution supporting the dispensary later that month.
No cultivation, manufacturing or packaging of medicinal cannabis would occur on site. The marijuana for the business would be grown in Franklin Township in Somerset County.
