WEST CAPE MAY – At its Dec. 29, 2021, Board of Commissioners meeting, West Cape May formally passed a resolution supporting a medical cannabis dispensary in the borough.
The authorization of support was for a cannabis license application by Shorehouse Canna LLC.
The borough adopted an ordinance in July 2021, which permitted certain cannabis businesses in specific zones. At the public hearing on the ordinance, members of the public were overwhelmingly supportive of the move, with only two of nine individuals who spoke offering objections.
At the December meeting, David Christian, who was identified as a principle of the Shorehouse Canna business venture, thanked the commissioners for the support. Christian said the owner of the new company was Jim Nuscis, a Cape May resident, who also owns Pappy’s Pig Roast and Barbeque in Marmora.
The recreational cannabis license process has attracted wide interest. The CRC announced that within four hours of the opening of the recreational cannabis license process Dec. 15, over 500 individuals and entities had established accounts.
