In New Jersey, Atlantic City Council Votes To Pull Lots Near Church, Nuns From Cannabis Zone

Atlantic City has created a “green zone” district where cannabis is an approved use

City Council Wednesday night introduced an ordinance to establish buffer zones around schools and religious buildings where cannabis businesses will not be allowed even if within the city’s “green zone.”

Sixth Ward Councilman Jesse Kurtz suggested an amendment, which passed, that also bans cannabis businesses from Atlantic Avenue lots between Georgia and Mississippi avenues around St. Michael’s Church.

“They are closest to (the church) and the Sisters of Renewal,” Kurtz said. “The sisters objected. They were not engaged in the initial conversation. They were horrified (cannabis would be nearby) where they do rehab classes.”

The Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal Convent is on Mississippi Avenue, near proposed cannabis sites.
