And recently, an "exotic" grocery store on Washington Street was shut down because, according to police, it was selling illegal cannabis without a license, and allegedly employed a juvenile.
At 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 1, Secaucus marijuana shop Harmony started recreational pot sales for the very first time.
This means that Harmony — which up until today was only allowed to sell pot to medicinal customers — can now sell marijuana to any member of the general public. You do not need a medical ID card; simply walk right in.
On Thursday, Patch reported that a second retail marijuana shop would like to open in Secaucus.
Now, on Friday, Secaucus town administrator Gary Jeffas gives the public more information about this new business seeking to open in town:

The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission voted 4-1 on Friday to approve Harmony’s expansion into recreational sales in Secaucus. The store opened as a medical marijuana facility in June 2018.

Harmony Dispensary is a tenant in a warehouse in the light industrial zone at 600 Meadowlands Parkway, Suite 15. The town is permitting facilities in the other lots that make up the warehouse space at that location, the kind of uses that officials say meant it would be unlikely that anyone other than Harmony would open up shop in town.
