MARIJUANA DISPENSARY IN MANALPAN, NEW JERSEY

Breakwater Alternative Treatment Center Corporation was one of six centers in New Jersey to receive state Department of Health and Senior Services approved to sell medical marijuana. You can imagine that local officials are worried about having this type of dispensary in the community. At the same time, others in the community are not so worried about the possible effects that the dispensary would have on the community.
The location of the shop will be on Route 33 and Madison Avenue and the dispensary would grow the marijuana at a site in Ocean County and then it would be transported to the Manalapan location.
Some township officials were not too happy about the announcement and do not like that Manalapan is the chosen location for the dispensary. Before this gets approved, it must first go before the town’s Zoning Board of Adjustment for approval. The State officials encourage the applicants to meet with local officials to discuss the center, and State officials will be meeting with site operators and monitoring how the project moves forward.
It is no surprise that Police Capt. Christopher Marsala said the department has concerns about security and the potential for a rise in crime at the proposed location.
This would be an interesting addition for the community and hopefully lead to less criminalization for minor marijuana offenses.
