Of the six businesses awarded new Alternative Treatment Centers by the Department of Health, Justice Grown is the least well known.
“We are the – I’m not going to say mom-and-pop – but we are the smaller guy playing in a very, very big market,” Justice Grown NJ CEO Jamil Taylor tells NJ Cannabis Media. “We were founded by social justice attorneys that believe that cannabis is a social justice issue. We feel diversity and inclusion are a very, very big piece of our business and our branding. Hence the term Justice Grown.”
That’s not to say Justice Grown, which will be located in Ewing Township, is an unknown entity. New Jersey is the fifth state it will operate in. It has vertically integrated licenses in California, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania and a cultivation license in Illinois.
In the six weeks since the announcement was made, Justice Grown has begun the process of building its operation in a 75,000 square foot space in Ewing.
“We had a great meeting with the Department of Health, just to make an introductions to our team and to the program,” Taylor says. “We are looking to finalize our lease very soon for the property and we are currently in architect design mode right now.”
