Anticipating Statewide Marijuana Legalization, Weehawken Amends Local Zoning Laws

“This amendment bans the commercial sale, growth, distribution, and use of marijuana in retail/commercial establishments ONLY. The township has not banned nor would it ban the personal use of prescribed medical marijuana or any personal use that may be passed through subsequent State legislation,” Turner wrote in a letter dated Wednesday.

The longtime mayor further stated that due to the township’s close proximity to New York City, many in the marijuana industry have inquired about both sales and converted storefronts and/or property into marijuana dispensaries.
