“The professionalism, your track record, your willingness and commitment to make investments in the community, Harmony, is the kind of businesses we want to see in Hoboken,” Business Administrator Jason Freeman said at the meeting.
“They seem to have the experience, Hoboken is not going to be the guinea pig in this process,” added Health and Human Services Director Leo Pellegrini.
While the three-member board (which also includes 3rd Ward Councilman Mike Russo) took no formal action at the meeting, it appears academic that Harmony will receive the necessary recommendation to go before the city’s planning board.
The New Jersey Department of Health has already grant Harmony a preliminary approval to proceed with their Hoboken plans.
“Harmony is fully invested in Hoboken and its community. We were excited for the opportunity to appear before the Hoboken Cannabis Review Board to share our commitment and medicinal offerings to Hoboken’s community,” Harmony CEO Shaya Brodchandel said in a statement.
“We currently see a fair amount of Hoboken medical patients in our Secaucus dispensary, and they have a 30-minute drive to purchase their medicine. Having an established and locally-rooted dispensary among Hoboken’s residents will bring convenience and ease to those patients, as well as future medical patients and adult-use customers.”
Harmony, a vertically integrated alternative treatment center (ATC), currently cultivates, dispenses, and distributes medicinal cannabis at its flagship Secaucus location.
