US (NJ): South River unveils complex plan for allowing cannabis businesses

The borough has introduced two ordinances that would allow certain licensed cannabis facilities to operate in nonresidential areas in the borough. 

The proposal, which was introduced late last month, would prohibit the retail sales of cannabis items and related supplies throughout the borough.

"There were a number of retailers that would like to sell cannabis, but we decided it was best to say no," Mayor John Krenzel said. "There is general agreement on this. If you want to wholesale grow it and sell it that is fine, but as far as retail that's a no." 

Under the proposal, the classes of cannabis licenses permitted in the borough would be: Class 1 cannabis cultivator license for facilities involved in growing and cultivating cannabis; Class 2 cannabis manufacture license for facilities involved in the manufacturing, preparation and packaging of cannabis items; Class 3 cannabis wholesaler license for facilities involved in obtaining and selling cannabis items for later resale by other licensees; Class 4 cannabis distributor license for businesses involved in transporting cannabis plants in bulk and Class 6 cannabis delivery license.
