GLEN ROCK, NJ — The mayor announced she is pulling together professionals to make up a commission on the sale of cannabis.

“I assure you,” Mayor Kristine Morieko said on May 12, “we are thinking of everything.”

Last month, the council opted out of allowing dispensaries within the borough’s borders, at least until the state comes out with regulations which may not be until late summer or fall.

Glen Rock Opts Out of Marijuana Sale…for Now

The state commission on the sale of marijuana has met three times so far, Morieko said. New Jersey voters approved a referendum in November to make recreational marijuana legal, and the governor subsequently signed legislation in February making legalization official. Medical marijuana has been available for sale in a practical sense since 2012.

Mayor Kristine Morieko said the state “doesn’t have their stuff together” yet, making it “unfair” for municipalities to move forward on regulating sales.

“There’s a lot of moving parts to this,” she said on May 12.

The council agreed to her suggestion of appointing a commission to research and come up with parameters to allow sales within the borough’s borders.

Council Member Teresa Gilbreath presented a drug-free map in which sales of marijuana would

Did you have a low-income year in 2019?

Did you ever get busted for a small amount of marijuana in Arizona?

If you can answer yes to both of these questions, you just qualified to enter a drawing for one of the state’s 26 “social equity” cannabis dispensary and cultivation licenses under Arizona’s new draft rules.

Now all you need is $5,000 for the non-refundable fee to enter this lottery.

If you’re looking for the “social equity” part of this new social equity policy, you’re not alone. Cannabis advocates criticized the draft rules in a big way this week, decrying the weak equity effort and saying the most likely result if these rules went into effect would be a swift grab of the 26 licenses by established cannabis companies. As many have noted, the rules provide no direct help to minority communities or individuals and seem to be contrary to what voters wanted from the social equity portion of Arizona’s new recreational legalization law.

Jaipur, May 14 (PTI) A Jodhpur-based social organisation has funded two oxygen plants worth Rs 55 lakh for COVID patients.

The oxygen plants having a capacity to provide the life-saving gas to 60 beds will be installed at a government-run dispensary in Jodhpur.

“We have received the plants, which will be handed over to the hospital staff and the administration in the next three-four days. The plants have been procured from a Vadodara-based firm at a cost of Rs 55 lakh,” said Umesh Lila, convener of Maharaja Shri Agrasen Welfare Society.

He said the working committee of the organisation took the decision on a proposal from the district administration.

He said initially an order of Rs 47 lakh was given to a firm in Aurangabad but after they expressed inability to supply the plants, the organisation bought these from the Vadodara company by giving Rs 8 lakh extra.

He said their organisation has also decided to serve two-time meals to the COVID patients admitted to the dispensary. PTI AG RDK RDK
