US (NJ): Warehouse in Hackensack may become a cannabis indoor cultivation facility

A warehouse in an industrial city neighborhood near Route 80 may become the site of an indoor cannabis farm.

Trikhoma LLC is looking to open a growing facility at the southern end of Hackensack. It gained the City Council’s support last week in its application to the state Cannabis Regulatory Commission for a cultivator license.

If the state approves the company’s application, it will need to come back to the city for zoning construction permits and other approvals, said Steve Kleinman, the city attorney.

“There is a lot still to do, but this was a critical step,” he said. “You cannot get a license without showing the municipality is supportive of what you’re trying to do.”

Two years ago, the council voted to allow one cannabis retail dispensary and one cultivator in limited areas. The number of cultivator licenses was later doubled after the city was approached by two interested companies.
