Despite concerns, Pennington Council is maintaining their support for three cannabis retail establishments in the borough.
Council President Kit Chandler, Councilman Charles Marciante, Councilwoman Kati Angarone, Councilwoman Nadine Stern and Councilman Ken Gross voted “yes” during a meeting on June 6 confirming their initial support of three resolutions for the cannabis retail establishments of Cannique, Fine Fettle and Jersey Meds Management.
The resolutions authorize the zoning officer to issue zoning letters as quickly as possible.
Pennington Borough Council conducted a Special Meeting on the evening of Monday, February 28, to hear applications seeking Ccouncil support for a State of New Jersey retail cannabis license.
Three companies presented applications to the Council seeking a Resolution of Support. At a previous meeting, Pennington approved one retail cannabis location, without a consumption area, in the designated Highway Business Zone on Route 31. Before the meeting Monday night, applicants were required to submit a completed questionnaire to clarify critical issues for Council members.
Marijuana might be legal in New Jersey, but residents of most area municipalities will have to travel to another town if they want to buy some.
Only four communities in Mercer County—Ewing, Lawrence, Pennington and Trenton—are set to allow the retail sale of cannabis within their borders. Also on that list is Bordentown City in Burlington County.

While Hopewell Township has signaled its unwillingness to allow cannabis sales in the Township, Hopewell Borough and Pennington Borough are more enthusiastic.
In an email to MercerMe last month, Mayor Paul Anzano spoke positively about the benefits of allowing the sale of cannabis, the use of which has been decriminalized since March. The State is now working on legislation to regulate the cultivation, sale, and use of cannabis. Municipalities will collect sales revenue from every type of sales, from wholesale to retail.
