Ever since the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (CRC) was established with the legalization of adult-use cannabis usage in the state, there has been a slow rollout for Cannabis Dispensaries in South Jersey. A new retail business has passed a major hurdle to open in Cape May County to serve an area that is currently without any retail sales of cannabis.

At the January Woodbine Planning Board meeting, they approved a variance for Seaweed Land LLC to open their retail outlet inside the former bookbinding factory that is located inside the Woodbine Municipal Airport Complex. The plan is to modernize the old building that will need to be repurposed to have a fully operational Cannabis Dispensary. With a private business taking over the old building allows the City of Woodbine to no longer be responsible for property maintenance and upgrades to the building that needs serious repairs.

The 44,000-square-foot building is located inside the airport zone, which means the property is already permitted under state law for the operation of a retail outlet for adult-use cannabis sales. Seaweed Land LLC, owned by Chris Glancy, plans to establish a cannabis facility that will grow, cultivate, process, and have retail sales all on location.

The next step for Seaweed Land LLC is to apply for the annual Cannabis Regulatory Commission license and to present to the Woodbine Planning Board a site plan for signage, traffic plans, and stormwater drainage. The new cannabis retail business must also comply with the New Jersey Pinelands Regulations before opening the retail outlet. No grand opening date has been announced yet for Chris Glancey's new business.
