    ordinance to provide for definitions for

    behavioral health-care facilities,health-care facilities, medical clinics,office-medical, office-research and de-


    Bakers Basin Road is included in the area affected by the recently passed land use ordinance amendment.The ordinance has changed the former Limited Industrial 1 District to a Mixed Use 2 District to address

    Lawrence Township is one ofjust four municipalities that havebeen awarded a Sustainable Jer-sey Small Grant at the $20,000level.

    The Sustainable Jersey SmallGrants Program is funded by thePSEG Foundation and is respon-sible for providing $200,000 tolocal governments in the name ofsustainability projects. Sustain-able Jersey has allocated approxi-mately $1,375,000 in grants to mu-nicipalities to assist towns in

    making their communities moreenvironmentally conscious andlivable.

    Lawrence Township has spear-headed a new recycling programthat gives residents the option ofcomposting organic waste for amonthly fee and on an optionalbasis. Removing organic materi-als from the waste stream will re-duce the amount of trash that istransported to the landfill. The

    Environmental ProtectionAgency has reported that foodscraps and yard waste account for20-30 percent of the waste stream.Composting prevents these mate-rials from entering landfills andconsequently taking up space andreleasing greenhouse gasses suchas methane, which is 21 timesmore potent than carbon dioxideemissions in the atmosphere.

    The contractor in charge of theprogram requires 300 householdsto sign up for the composting op-tion before collection can begin.The fee for joining the program is$17 per month, which will be

    billed quarterly from Central Jer-sey Waste, and includes the deliv-ery of a 32-gallon recycle cart.The grant proceeds will help off-set costs for the participatinghouseholds. The composted mate-rials will be transported to Wilm-ington, Del.

    The items permitted to be dis-posed of in the composting cartinclude raw food, scraps, cookedfood, meat, bones, paper towels,pizza boxes, fruit and vegetablepeels, litter box material, coffeegrounds, tea bags, fish, egg shells,non-Styrofoam egg cartons,waxed cardboard, oils, fats, but-ters, brown paper bags, papertake-out containers, newspapers,office paper, fruit and nuts,

    breads, pasta, grains, liquids andsauces, houseplants and flowerbouquets, and dairy products.

    This is an encouraging signfor our new program and shouldhelp us get to our first goal of 300households. I am thankful andproud of our volunteers who putin this effort, not only applyingfor the grant, but getting this ini-tiative off the ground, MayorCathleen Lewis said in a press re-lease.

    Sustainable Jersey directs itsfunding and resources to munici-palities to aid them in makingprogress. The percentage of the

    states participating municipali-ties registered to become certifiedis at 72.

    The impact that these projectswill make in New Jersey is in-credible, Pam Mount, chair ofthe Sustainable Jersey Board ofTrustees, said in a press release.Aiding towns and Green Teamsto achieve their sustainabilitygoals by funding green initiativeswill have a ripple effect that willbenefit us all.

    Currently, 67 households out ofthe required 300 have signed upfor the composting program. In-terested residents should contactthe Public Works Department at(609) 587-1894 or by email at

    The following are on file with theLawrence Township Police Department.

    On March 19 at 1:37 p.m., officers investi-gated the theft of a stop sign on LanniganRoad and Princeton Pike. The pole was notdamaged, so the officers were aware itwas a theft. Public works will replace thesign.

    On March 19, a trespassing was reportedat Halo Farm in Lawrence. A 56-year-oldman from Trenton who had formerly beenbanned from the property from panhan-dling was on the premises. The man wascharged with trespassing.

    On March 19, a 15-year-old male wasfound to be in possession of 1.5 grams ofmarijuana at Lawrence High School. Otherstudents believed that the suspect mayhave been in possession of drugs and in-formed the assistant principal. He wasprocessed and released to a guardian, andthe case will be heard in family court.

    On March 20, at DSW a theft was report-

    ed from a vehicle with all four doors un-locked. A cellphone was missing and val-ued at $400. The investigation is ongoing.

    On March 20, an 18-year-old male fromTrenton was charged with receiving stolen

    property and hindering apprehension.Quakerbridge Mall security recovered abackpack which was filled with $150 ofstolen merchandise from H&M. Sears lossprevention officers saw the 18-year-oldmale exit Sears in the package pickup areaUpon realizing he had been spotted by lossprevention, he attempted to hide the back-pack and flee. The backpack was recov-ered. Then he returned and asked for his

    backpack. He then gave officers a falsename and claimed he had no identifica-tion. Upon searching the backpack, offi-cers found his true identity. H&M employ-

    The states of Colorado and

    Washington legalized marijua-

    na for recreational purposes in

    2012. Could New Jersey be next?

    State Sen. Nicholas Scutari is hop-

    ing that it will. This week, he is sched-

    uled to formally present a bill that

    would legalize marijuana in the stateand tax it heavily. His bill would be

    modeled after those in Washington

    and Colorado, which earned $2 million

    in the first month of sales last year.

    Scutaris bill plans to tax and regu-

    late marijuana much like alcohol, and

    he estimates that New Jersey could

    earn $100 million per year in revenue

    from weed tax.

    Anybody that looks at the facts

    knows that the war on marijuana has

    been a miserable failure, Scutari said

    in a press release. Were not delusion-

    al about how simple the effort would

    be, but I think from a standpoint of

    moving this state and this country for-

    ward on its archaic drug laws, I think

    its a step in the right direction.From a purely financial perspective,

    legalizing marijuana makes sense.

    While $100 million may seem like an

    inflated number, its probably not out

    of the realm of possibility. New Jersey

    had 2 million more residents than

    Washington as of the 2010 Census and

    3.7 million more than Colorado.

    Much like alcohol consumption andgambling, if people are going to par-

    take in the practice of smoking mari-

    juana, why not reap the benefits of

    taxing the substance while at the

    same time avoiding the cost of polic-

    ing against it?

    From an operational standpoint,

    New Jersey has two other states to

    model its plan after, plus many other

    states in the U.S. that have decriminal-

    ized the possession of marijuana for

    recreational use. The Garden State has

    also already legalized its use for med-

    ical purposes.

    People are also behind its legaliza-

    tion. Lake Research Partners releaseda poll last year that said 59 percent of

    Jersey voters would support a bill

    such as this, and an October Gallup

    poll said 58 percent of Americans are

    in favor of marijuana legalization.

    But then, of course, comes the

    curveball emotion, morality and ex-


    Just because people do it doesnt

    make it right. And just because states

    can legalize and tax marijuana doesnt

    mean they should.

    What example does legalizing mari-

    juana set for our children? How far

    will we go just to make, or save, a

    buck? Or are we just being too prudish

    about this weed thing?

    in our opinion

    Puff, puff, pass ... on lower taxes?Should New Jersey give green light to legal marijuana? Its an interesting case

    Your thoughts

    Should New Jersey legalize and taxmarijuana for recreational purposes? Orwould it be doing too much for theallmighty dollar? Share your thoughtsthrough a letter to the editor.

    Blood drive planned April 10

    velopment, residential medicaldetoxification centers and urgentcare centers. The amendmentwill rename the Limited Indus-trial 1 District to a Mixed Use 2

    District.The amendment stemmed from

    a recommendation in the zoningboards 2013 annual report. Afterseveral years of review, the boarddecided that further discussionwas necessary regarding medicaluses, such as residential detoxifi-cation.

    Township Manager RichardKrawczun explained that the landuse ordinance is a living docu-ment that needs to be amendeddue to the changing needs of the

    township and society. For exam-ple, Krawczun cited the recentchange to the zoning ordinancethat added the permission of con-venience stores and gas stationsto be located on the same proper-ty.

    The amendment allows thenew uses along Lawrence StationRoad, east of BrunswickPike/Route 1 and south or west ofI-295. Any new uses must includea minimum lot size of three

    acres, and the number of patientsis limited to 50 people.The Mixed-Use-2 zone will not

    eliminate any uses included inthe prior Limited Industrial-1zone, which includes houses of

    worship, garden centers, agricul-ture, wholesale distribution andwarehouses, light manufactur-ing, animal kennels, general con-tractors, landscape contractorsand residential uses.

    At the public hearing, resi-dents expressed discontent withthe possibility of a detoxificationcenter.

    Every time there is new devel-

    opment, it becomes a flood prob-lem for us, Dan OConnell, a resi-dent of Bakers Basin Road, said.

    Olympia Perry, a resident in aneighborhood behind BakersBasin Road, felt her sense of safe-ty was in jeopardy with the possi-bility of a detoxification centerand that it is not a suitable areafor population increase.

    Mayor Cathleen Lewis empha-sized that there is not currently aproposal for a facility, and if onearises, it will need to go before the

    planning board for approval.We do not want that door

    opened, Perry said.After the approval of the

    amendment, CouncilmanStephen Brame said in responseto questions of safety, a detoxifi-cation center is very differentthan a rehabilitation center youall have fathomed concernsfrom.

    The amendment adopted by thecouncil said the new use is suit-

    able due to its proximity to high-ways, distance from residentialneighborhoods in which 24-houroperation would have a substan-tial impact and the availability ofpublic water and sewers.
