An ordinance allowing the cultivation, manufacturing, wholesaling and distribution of recreational marijuana was approved by Winslow Township in August. Retail cannabis stores are not permitted. Another new local law calls for a transfer tax, allowed under state law, of 2% for cultivation and manufacturing operations.
RGC 2 LLC of Egg Harbor Township, owned by James DiNatale, received unanimous approval for the plan from the Camden County Planning Board at its September meeting. The Winslow Zoning Board of Adjustment approved it unanimously in August.
James DiNatale and George Irwin have each tried to land a license from the state to develop a medical marijuana dispensary.
DiNatale did not receive one as part of his partnership he started called Superior Grow Lab that was looking to grow medical marijuana in the city.
Irwin is waiting to hear whether he will receive one of the new 24 licenses the state will hand out.
In the meantime, each man separately is committed to trying to help the South Jersey economy through the medical marijuana business.
South Jersey investors and companies have been working for months to secure growing and dispensing sites, partner organizations, municipal approval, financial resources and more to put forth applications that will be reviewed and scored by state officials.
Those investors include the team of Dr. Ira Trocki, owner of Egg Harbor City Boat Co. and Northfield-based plastic surgeon, and Dr. Jon Regis, CEO and president of Reliance Medical Center.
