Mayor Richard LaBarbiera presided over his last meeting on December 20, and as he hands the gavel to Christopher DiPiazza, there is a lingering issue about a resolution approving a medical marijuana license during the final council meeting in 2021.

Allowing comments from several borough residents opposing the introduction of the cannabis dispensary, the Madison Borough Council has decided to postpone their vote on the proposed business.

According to Nicholas Dasaro, COO of 1st Choice Health + Wellness, the company is interested in Madison because of its central location in northern New Jersey.
