Who is Scott Rudder?

Township Green is owned and operated by former Republican mayor, assemblyman, and veteran Scott Rudder. He has dedicated nearly the last decade of his life to the legalization and entrepreneurial expansion of medical and adult-use cannabis.

Rudder founded the New Jersey CannabisBusiness Association in 2016 to serve as the state’s premiere cannabis trade industry association. He has helped organize and was a top consultant to statewide campaigns to legalize pot in New Jersey in 2020.

He hopes Township Green will help revitalize and bring more foot traffic and customers to the downtown business district of Riverside. The dispensary will employ approximately 20 people, with the majority of them being residents.

Township Green is known for serving fine cannabis flowers, pre-rolls, concentrates, vapes, tinctures, edibles, and accessories in the Western New Jersey/Great Philadelphia area.
