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.
Entrepreneurs who want to set up a cannabis-based business in Collingswood will have to pay the borough a $2,500 non-refundable application fee, according to an ordinance adopted at a recent Collingswood Borough Commissioners Meeting.
This fee will cover the costs associated with the borough looking into providing what the State of New Jersey's Cannabis Regulatory Commission calls "proof of local support," the ordinance states.

On Thursday, New Jersey legislators in the state Senate and Assembly both passed landmark legislation approving recreational adult-use cannabis, eliminating criminal and civil penalties for possession of up to six ounces of marijuana, and downgrading the penalty for sale of up to one ounce of the drug to a warning for first offenders and fourth-degree (disorderly persons) charges for subsequent offenses.
