They were previously both approved by the Hoboken Cannabis Review Board (CRB).
Blue Violets is owned by Lauren and Max Thompson and seeks to open its doors at 628 Washington St. Max Thompson said they would have 10 employees maximum as a micro business.
He tried to ensure them there would be a limited amount of people gathered due to a pre-order. They plan to be open from 10 a.m. through 8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Mondays.
“We’ll aim to have deliveries early in the day, in the morning, if possible,” Max Thompson said.
“We’re here to talk about this land use. So please, when you get to ask questions, limit your questions to that,“ Planning Board Chair Frank Magaletta said.
Thompson noted they have applied to the NJ Cannabis Regulatory Commission (NJCRC) for a conditional adult-use cannabis dispensary license. While 505 adult-use cannabis licenses have been awarded, they are among those still waiting to hear back.
He indicated that they submitted their security plan to the Hoboken Police Department
