Tap Into reports

SAYREVILLE, NJ — The Sayreville Council has introduced an ordinance that would ban both recreational and medical marijuana businesses from operating in the borough. The governing body will hold a public hearing on the ordinance at its next (virtual) meeting on June 14.

The ordinance would amend borough zoning laws to prohibit licenses issued for cultivation, manufacturing, and retail distribution of marijuana. It would also prohibit medical marijuana facilities in Sayreville.

Edward “Lefty” Grimes of Sativa Cross, an organization that advocates for cannabis patient’s rights, called into Monday’s meeting (1:04 into the video) on behalf of people with cancer and disabled war vets who use medical marijuana.

“You’re messing with the supply chain of medicine for people… They need your help.” Grimes said. “What are you supposed to do when your medicine is being banned? My disabled war vet friend — who has cancer — has an hour drive to get it.”

“Cancer patients don’t have much time to wait,” Grimes said. “Two-thirds of New Jersey voted for it.”

Attorney Michael Dupont said that everyone on the council has a great amount of compassion for medical marijuana patients.
