Brick Marijuana Ban
By Gary Beeg Jr.
The Brick Township Council has set Tuesday, February 26 as the date for a vote on the banning of recreational marijuana sales and cultivation.
The old Ocean First Bank is the site for a proposed marijuana dispensary on Adamston Road, which is a heavy residential area.
There is also a school and a church nearby.
“I wouldn’t be in favor of having any stores in town selling recreational marijuana,” Mayor John Ducey said in November during an interview where he called the 2 percent sales tax that would be remitted to local municipalities “a joke.”
Ducey’s opinion changed a few weeks ago when he said he would be in favor of letting the voters decide on recreational sales. Ducey does not cast a vote but does wield veto power.
The meeting, which is expected to draw a large attendance, is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Brick municipal complex on Chambers Bridge Road.
Ocean County Scanner News will be present for the meeting as this story is still developing.

That sucks. I gotta go to the dispensary in fucking monroe and I’m in middletown.
Rich Fink Jr. If you havent tried them yet the one in eggharbor is pretty wonderful. It’s right of exit 38
I have to go to egg harbor, first time last week, it is a long ride. Brick would be better.
Barbara Sigley Silva ha! I stocked up. Can’t be doing that drive once a month
Rahway has one on rt 1
But it’s ok for there to be a drug store and liquor store on every corner… seriously you can die from items purchased in the liquor and drug store the dispensary will just increase restaurant sales and make it easier for medicinal purchase
Brick has always had “reefer madness”! Nick Huk

Reefer madness? What idiot wrote this article? Might wanna educate yourself first. There’s no victims, only patients who could benefit from letting go of your ignorance!
Bobby, I’m the “idiot” that wrote the article but I did not choose the headline with the words “reefer madness”. My headline is above my name. Thank you for reading though!
The only people against marijuana are the ignorant morons
When will they ever earn? The medical evidence is overwhelming if one takes the time to research. Just one; https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29327809
Let’s all tune in at 1130 this morning….
Gonna be legal soon enough. Not to worry. They should make alcohol illegal once again
The more people that get on a Ducey today on FB live and tonight at council meeting, the better.
Ducey was asked a while back about a ban, and he said until the legislation passed it was just a waste of taxpayers money. Why all of a sudden now?? What is his reason for the ban?
Jessica Duff Ban marijuana? The concept is just fkn bizarre.
