New Jersey’s Oakland borough has banned marijuana retail operations before the state has authorized them.
An ordinance has been passed that bans retail stores, cultivation facilities, manufacturing, testing, social clubs, possession, storing, cultivation, testing, labeling, transport, delivery, dispensing, and distribution.
Exempt from the ordinance is medical marijuana use, dispensaries, and caregivers.
A vote is in the process of being drafted by the state legislature for a vote by year end at the urging of Gov. Phil Murphy, that calls for legalized dispensaries, home delivery, and smoking lounges.
