Medicinal Marijuana

The Borough of Madison recently passed ordinances to permit Medical Cannabis Dispensary within our municipality. Below are some links pertaining to the ordinances:

  • Ordinance 15-2022 - Ordinance of the Borough of Madison Amending and Supplementing Part II of the Madison Borough Code Entitled General Legislation, to include Chapter 193 Entitled Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary

The Borough of Madison has received an application from 1st Choice Health & Wellness, LLC for a permit to operate a medicinal cannabis dispensary at 340 Main Street (the office building next to Lukoil Gas Station). The applicant has previously been issued a license by the State of New Jersey to operate a facility, but a local license is also required.

The applicable Borough ordinance requires a due diligence review of the proposed security plan by the Police Department, the financial plan by the Chief Financial Officer and zoning compliance by the Zoning Officer which process is currently underway. 

The Borough Council will hold a public hearing on November 28, 2022 at 8:00 p.m. in the Hartley Dodge Memorial Building, 50 Kings Road regarding the local license approval. 

A copy of the application and supporting documentations are viewable at the below links, or in the Borough Clerk's Office, and are available for public inspection during regular business hour. 

Your participation at the hearing is encouraged. If you have any questions prior to the hearing, please contact Raymond M. Codey, Administrator at (973) 593-3038.
