The list of towns banning marijuana sales is growing faster than the list of towns who will allow it.

Officials in Asbury Park, Atlantic City, Jersey City, and Trenton have said they would welcome the business (and tax revenue). Seaside Heights and Toms River have both said they were considering allowing it, but waiting for more information to come in.


Here is the list of towns who have said they would ban all marijuana sales (in alphabetical order):

Barnegat, Ocean County

Berkeley, Ocean County

Bridgewater,  Somerset County

Brigantine, Atlantic County

Carlstadt, Bergen County

Chatham Township, Morris County

Cranbury, Middlesex County

East Rutherford, Bergen County

Garfield, Bergen County

Hasbrouck Heights, Bergen County

Hawthorne, Passaic County

Hazlet, Monmouth County

Lodi, Bergen County

Mahwah, Bergen County

Manville, Somerset County

North Caldwell, Essex County

Oceanport, Monmouth County

Old Bridge, Middlesex County

Parsippany-Troy Hills, Morris County**

Pleasantville, Atlantic County

Point Pleasant Beach, Ocean County

Spotswood, Middlesex County**

Surf City, Ocean County

Union City, Hudson County

Upper Freehold, Monmouth County

Wall, Monmouth County

Weehawken, Hudson County

West Long Branch, Monmouth County

Woodcliff Lake, Bergen County

Wyckoff, Bergen County

**Parsippany and Spotswood both have resolutions that don't ban marijuana businesses, but strongly opposes marijuana legalization.

I'm still amazed that so many towns are putting their foot down and not allowing marijuana sales. Normally towns are looking for every single tax they can get, but they're going to turn down this?
