WEST CAPE MAY - Those looking to purchase marijuana can do so under a West Cape May ordinance approved July 14. 

The Press of Atlantic City reports that the ordinance institutes a 2% local tax on sales from cultivation and manufacturing and a 1% tax of each wholesale or retail sale. 

The ordinance allows state-licensed cannabis sales in two commercial zones, along Sunset and Park boulevards, but not along Broadway, the Press said.
