Twisted Joint has withdrawn its application with Cinnaminson Township regarding a potential cannabis dispensary in that municipality, a township official said.
The company had planned to make a presentation before the Cinnaminson Township Zoning Board earlier this month seeking permission to turn 2401 U.S. Route 130 into a cannabis dispensary.
The site the company had in mind is currently home to an eye care center, a Google search revealed.
Recreational marijuana establishments that are licensed by the state are now permitted to operate in Cinnaminson after legislation that was passed at Monday night's Township Committee meeting.
That doesn't mean dispensaries will begin popping up in the township, Mayor Albert Segrest said. Township Committee's 5-0 vote to allow cannabis establishments as a permitted use in the township just sets the parameters so if a business does want to come into the township, there are already laws in place.
Maple Shade doesn't want recreational marijuana businesses in town.
Moorestown is leaning toward permitting all types.
And Cinnaminson would allow them, but retailing would have to be connected to cultivating or manufacturing cannabis.
They are the latest communities in South Jersey wrestling with the decision of whether or not to permit marijuana operations to open for business within their borders.
Marijuana establishments that are licensed by the state would be permitted to operate within Cinnaminson under new legislation that was introduced Monday night.
Cinnaminson Township Committee introduced a proposed ordinance to allow cannabis establishments as a permitted use in the township when it met Monday night.
It also introduced a proposal setting the amount each establishment would be taxed, based on their license. The public hearings and final votes on each proposal will take place July 19.
A sub-committee that was formed to explore how the legalization of recreational marijuana will impact Cinnaminson is will meet next month, Deputy Mayor Stephanie Kravil said during Monday night's Township Committee meeting.
Kravil, Committeeman Ernest McGill, Township Administrator Eric Schubiger and Police Chief Richard Calabrese were members of a sub-committee that was formed in 2018 when it appeared that the state would be legalizing marijuana for recreational use.

New Jersey lawmakers are slated to hold their first votes on long-awaited legislation to legalize and regulate the sale of marijuana for adult recreational use next week, but already at least one Burlington County town is moving to ban such pot businesses from locating within its borders.
