Entrepreneur, innovator, advocate, friend — these are the words used most often to describe Laurie McHugh.
From opening Union Chill cannabis dispensary in Lambertville, to co-founding a recreational row-boat racing nonprofit also dedicated to fighting food insecurity, or her work on the New Hope Borough Council, McHugh was all about serving her community.
McHugh, 58, died Aug. 21 in a collision with a large tractor-trailer in Buckingham Township, Pennsylvania.
Union Chill is located at 204 North Union Street in a haven for artists and craftsmen and just minutes from a host of antique shops, eclectic galleries, and comfortable coffee shops clustered on the banks of the scenic Delaware River. The walkable town center features treasures everywhere, in what is known as “The Antiques Capital of New Jersey.”
More than year after state voters overwhelmingly approved legalized marijuana in a referendum, the citys planning board is scheduled to hold a special meeting at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 to consider three proposals to open marijuana stores in Lambertville.
The three proposals are:
- Baked by The River, to open a 660-square-foot "micro-business" at 10-12 Church St.
- Jersey Girlz, to open a 10,145-square-foot store at 80 Lambert Lane.
- Union Chill Cannabis Company, to open a 2,902-square foot store at 204 N. Union St.
After voting in July to allow certain kinds of cannabis retailers within city limits, the Lambertville planning board is now reviewing applications for new businesses in the Delaware River towns.
In a special meeting on Feb. 23, the board will vote on two of the three proposals currently under consideration.
Baked by the River, a cannabis micro-business, hopes for site approval of a 660-square-foot shop at 10-12 Church St. The micro-business would then file for an annual license before the March 15 due date, should planning board approval go through.
The focus of Tuesday evening’s Lambertville council agenda was an ordinance to allow sales of cannabis within the city.
The new law amends land use regulations to allow only one type of the six New Jersey permitted cannabis businesses. It does not permit consumption areas at this time.
The ordinance also establishes a Cannabis Transfer Tax of 2%, which is the maximum the state will permit.

The City of Lambertville Cannabis Work Group wants to hear from all Lambertville Residents!
Why? The City of Lambertville needs to make important decisions and take action as to whether we as a city want to permit or not permit any or all parts of the Cannabis Industry from operating in our community.
A little history on this is as follows:
