On May 4th, Nutley’s Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to introduce Ordinance no. 3473 prohibiting the operation of any cannabis related businesses within Nutley.  

A public hearing is scheduled for June 1st. 

Please join me in reminding Mayor Tucci & Nutley’s Board of Commissioners that  64.67% of Nutley voters supported NJ’s Ballot Question 1 to amend our state’s constitution and legalize marijuana. NJ’s statewide passage is the largest margin of victory for cannabis legalization in US history!

As Nutley residents we have been clamoring  for property tax relief!

Our schools are overcrowded and while many favored the proposals outlined in the Referendum, it ultimately failed because of the cost to the taxpayers.

We need more SENIOR housing, not apartment buildings.

We want the businesses already in town to flourish and revitalize our commercial storefronts and spaces. 

Nutley’s leadership has an opportunity to be foward-thinkers and establish a culture of acceptance and innovation!

Perhaps I’m being naive, but when I learned NJ’s expected annual excise tax from a fully operational market is $158,974,353 and in nearby Massachusetts their 2020 revenue was $81,734,083 while being less populated than NJ, with numbers like this how can Nutley leadership be in favor of prohibition

The “Act” clearly states the NJ Cannabis Regulatory Commission shall solicit and consider input from the municipality, it seems to me that Nutley would have decision making authority regarding all aspects of canna-business operations. 

By enacting Ordinance no. 3473 Nutley is essentially alienating possible investors, when instead we could be marketing to canna-businesses.

Nutley could gain the revenue it needs without passing the burden onto its homeowners and business owners. It’s a win-win for all! 

Thank you.
