Jackson Twp: The Next Spot for Pot?

A company whose plans to build a medical marijuana growing facility have been rebuffed by two central New Jersey communities is looking to a nearby town for support.

Breakwater Alternative Treatment Center has approached officials in Jackson Township about the possibility of locating a facility there. The company previously approached Upper Freehold and Plumsted, but was turned away.

But Jackson officials seem to have similar concerns. At a township council meeting Tuesday night, they cited a conflict between federal law, which does not permit the cultivation of medical marijuana, and state law, which does.

The council ultimately took no action on the request, saying more study is needed.

Jonathan Fisher, an official with Breakwater, says the company wants to work with the township, not against it.
