South River to allow licensed marijuana facilities, but won’t let retail stores sell it
South River will allow licensed facilities to grow and process marijuana wholesale but will not permit retail pot stores to open.
The Borough Council earlier this month approved two ordinances allowing certain licensed marijuana facilities to operate in nonresidential areas in the borough.
Under state law, if towns don't adopt a marijuana zoning ordinance by Sunday, businesses would be allowed to operate in there for five years.
But a municipality can reverse its decision at any time.
