LAKEHURST, NJ — Cannabis users in Ocean County will soon have a third place to purchase their cannabis, as the High Profile Dispensary prepares to open its doors.
The dispensary, at 145 Route 70 in Lakehurst, has posted “Coming Soon” signs and has added the location to its website.
An opening date has not been announced, but a Google listing for the dispensary says it is opening Oct. 30. Messages seeking information from the company have not been answered.
High Profile Dispensary is the first of three cannabis businesses that have license approvals in Lakehurst. The Borough Council also approved Life Extracts LLC for a Class 2 cannabis manufacturer license for an operation that will be in the light industrial zone, and Stoke Industries LLC received approval for a retail license at 112 Center St.
Lakehurst Mayor Harry Robbins said borough officials are considering amending the borough’s ordinance to allow two retail cannabis businesses in the borough’s B-2 business zone, which runs along Route 70, which would allow it to approve a second one on the western portion of the Route 70 corridor. The High Profile site is on the eastern half, according to minutes from the council meeting.
