Alexandria votes down marijuana
The Butler council unanimously approved an ordinance to authorize retail recreational cannabis sales on Tuesday, making the borough the third municipality in Morris County to allow sellers to set up shop.
The vote follows a similar action on Monday in Boonton, where the council approved retail sales and wholesaling by a 7-1 vote. Rockaway Township also has approved retail sales along with the other five cannabis-related business categories: cultivation, manufacturing, wholesaling, distribution and delivery.
Legal cannabis sales – retail and wholesale – are coming to town.
The town council voted, 7-1, Monday to approve those select operations, restricting them to the commercial zone along Myrtle Avenue (Route 202).
Council members approved the ordinance after a brief public discussion in which about six of the 40 people in attendance voiced their opinions about the measure.
Some were against retail sales and urged the council to keep the operations away from schools and children.
