Pleasantville Passes Law Supporting Marijuana Industry, US Army Corps Study Finds | Local news
Over the past 20 years, the Pleasantville Post Office has employed approximately 200 different people.
Resolution 179 expresses support for the state to grant a micro-grower license to Brightside Canopy LLC.
Ordinance 9, which the council unanimously passed, authorizes the retail sale of marijuana in the city and expands the space in the city in which commercial marijuana activities will be permitted. As Peyton said, the ordinance does not express support for licensing a particular marijuana retailer. The ordinance passed Monday overturns an earlier ordinance passed in August that banned the retail sale of marijuana in the city. This August ordinance, however, established both a 2% transfer tax on cultivation sales of marijuana and a 2% transfer tax on retail marijuana sales.
When New Jersey legalized marijuana in response to a 2020 referendum passed by voters, the state government created a licensing process that interested businesses should go through before operating a marijuana business. The license application period for growers and manufacturers of marijuana begins next week, December 15th. The application period for marijuana retailers begins three months later on March 15.
The state only grants 37 licenses for macro growers, which means the application process should be competitive. There is, however, no cap on the number of licenses the state can grant to microcultivators, which must meet certain constraints of size, production, location and labor.
