US (NJ): Cannabis businesses receive city council support in Paterson

The Paterson City Council expressed its support for four cannabis business-related state applications at their Tuesday night meeting. Green Recreational Holdings LLC's application was approved to operate as a Class 2 Cannabis Manufacturer at 185-199 6th Avenue, while CANN-SC LLC, Aurora Green LLC, and Green Leaf Pharma NJ, LLC's applications were approved to operate as a Class 1 Cannabis Cultivator at 189 E. 7th St., 52-66 Iowa Ave, and 48 E. 23rd St. 

Under State law, a "cannabis cultivator" may "plant, cultivate, grow, and harvest" cannabis, and a "cannabis manufacturer" may "produce, manufacture, or otherwise create" cannabis products, but each shall not sell to patients or other consumers.

While there was some debate about how the application process was done between certain entities, three of the applications received unanimous support while Fourth Ward Councilwoman Ruby Cotton and Councilwoman-at-Large Dr. Lilisa Mimms opposed Green Recreational Holdings LCC's application to operate a Class 2 manufacturer. 

"This item was originally for two different things, cultivation, and manufacturing," Mimms said. "The payment should have been $125,000. There are two different things they are applying for. Every application requires payment, and this item was already put forward without payment, it was an incomplete application. His $60,000 was never for cultivation. Last week you made zero payments, and then I saw you make the payment, so it was ready in time for today. It's $60,000 each, and you did it for cultivation, you didn't pay for both. This is wrong. They separated this, and it should be two fees."
