Town Committee to vote on cannabis ordinance

On the Dec. 19 Harrison Township Committee meeting, the committee will vote to change the current ordinance on cannabis growth in Mullica Hill. Currently, the town has voted for Class 1 Cannabis Cultivator and Class 2 Cannabis Manufacturer. 

This means that so far Mullica Hill can only grow and cultivate cannabis, not have a dispensary. The closest dispensary to Mullica Hill is Cannabist that can be found in Deptford Township. The state of New Jersey identifies cannabis as the following:

“Cannabis” means all parts of the plant Cannabis sativa L., whether growing or not, the seeds thereof, and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of the plant or its seeds, except those containing resin extracted from the plant, which are cultivated and, when applicable, manufactured in accordance with P.L.2021, c.16 (N.J.S.A. 24:6I-31 et al.) for use in cannabis products as set forth in this act, but shall not include the weight of any other ingredient combined with cannabis to prepare topical or oral administrations, food, drink, or other product. “Cannabis” does not include: medical cannabis dispensed to registered qualifying patients pursuant to the Jake Honig Compassionate Use Medical Cannabis Act, P.L.2009, c.307 (N.J.S.A. 24:6I-1 et al.) and P.L.2015, c.158 (N.J.S.A. 18A:40-12.22 et al.); marijuana as defined in N.J.S. 2C:35-2 and applied to any offense set forth in chapters 35, 35A, and 36 of Title 2C of the New Jersey Statutes, or P.L.2001, c.114 (N.J.S. 2C:35B-1 et seq.), or marihuana as defined in section 2 of P.L.1970, c.226 (N.J.S.A. 24:21-2) and applied to any offense set forth in the New Jersey Controlled Dangerous Substances Act, P.L.1970, c.226 (N.J.S.A. 24:21-1 et al.); or hemp or a hemp product cultivated, handled, processed, transported, or sold pursuant to the New Jersey Hemp Farming Act, P.L.2019, c.238 (N.J.S.A. 4:28-6 et al.).
