It appears that Hoboken will indeed be getting a “green district” as local officials have signed off on a plan to allow a Colorado-based company to open another medicinal marijuana facility.
Earlier this month, Hoboken’s planning board approved an application from Terrapin to open a dispensary at 86 River Street. The company announced its intentions last September and will be partnering on the endeavor with Joseph Castelo, a filmmaker who co-owns Antique Bar and Bakery and Antique Loft.
“We are thrilled to be moving forward with our plans to bring critical cannabis medicine to patients in New Jersey,” said Chris Woods, owner and CEO of Terrapin. “We are thankful to our partners in the Hoboken community for patiently supporting us with open arms. Despite delays to the licensing process, Terrapin has never wavered in its commitment to serving patients in North Jersey. We look forward to serving the community as responsible corporate citizens in meeting the demands of cannabis patients, while leaving a positive community impact.”
