The number of municipalities in New Jersey that have either passed ordinances banning or officially voiced opposition to marijuana businesses opening, if and when adult recreational use is enacted by the state legislature.

NJ.com has a list of the 30 municipalities.

Clifton may become No. 31, reports NorthJersey.com and Secaucus No. 32, according to the HudsonReporter.com.

Clifton voted unanimously to prohibit the selling and growing of recreational marijuana within city limits; the ordinance needs to be adopted on second reading.

The Secaucus mayor and town council introduced a zoning ordinance at their July 24 meeting that would ban the sale, growth, and distribution of recreational marijuana in town, blocking recreational marijuana dispensaries from opening.

Assemblyman Jamel Holley, a former mayor of Roselle, took to Twitter to reply:

“We have over 500 towns in Jersey. 30 so far have banned the sale of legal weed before the law is passed. Perhaps these towns don’t want the revenues we will receive from the imposed tax? Stop jumping ahead before you know what it looks like. – from a former mayor.”
