New Jersey Prepares for Opening of First Collectives This Fall

 by lucy

Southern New Jersey’s first marijuana growing operation and collective is expected to open this fall in Egg Harbor Township.

Medical marijuana was legalized in New Jersey almost 2 and a half years ago.  The state has authorized 6 collectives to open, but currently none of them have opened.

Egg Harbor Township recently issued the future collective a zoning permit, which is a large step in a state where collectives have faced resistance, despite the voter approved medical marijuana measure.

The zoning permit was issued two weeks ago to Developer Leo B. Schoffer when he asked to lease his warehouse to a marijuana dispensary.  The 85,000 square foot warehouse is in an industrial park.

New Jersey towns in 5 other municipalities have been rejecting plans for collectives, due to fear of increased crime and “potheads” infiltrating their communities.
