ATC Seeks Support in Upper Freehold

Breakwater Alternative Treatment Center will be facing a lot of opposition in Upper Freehold Township when they discuss their plans for a medical marijuana production facility at a Township Committee Meeting on Thursday, November 17 starting at 6:00 PM.

The meeting will take place at 314 ROUTE 539, CREAM RIDGE, NJ 08514 TELE: 609-758-7738.

There has already been considerable local concern and discussion.

Dr. Curtis Byrnes, a local physician, has asked to be heard regarding Breakwater ATC locating in Upper Freehold Township (UFT). Dr. Byrnes has written an Open Letter where he says that there will be "Adverse effects on property values and rising local police costs" should Breakwater be allowed to locate in UFT.

Andrew Zaleski from Breakwater Alternative Treatment Center has reached out to patients who could benefit from medical marijuana and invited them to testify at the meeting. He believes the focus of the meeting will be on crime (security issues), home values and medicinal value of medical marijuana.

The meeting promises to be lively.
