The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority supported two planned cannabis businesses in the city on Tuesday, part of a growing number in the works for the resort.

Members also approved new apartments at a former rooming house, one officials described as a notorious problem property.

The board approved use variances for a dispensary and consumption lounge at 3112 Atlantic Ave., and to a proposed cannabis growing facility that will take up most of a block at 1705 Atlantic Ave.

The CRDA serves as the planning authority within the tourism district of Atlantic City. It has already supported plans for other cannabis businesses, starting with a vote in April for a dispensary on Pacific Avenue, just days before the first legal cannabis sales took place in New Jersey.  Read more from the Press of Atlantic City.
