The 108 new licenses will be split into three different types of endorsements:
- 54 dispensary endorsements
- 24 cultivation endorsements
- 30 manufacturing endorsements
To allow small and medium-sized businesses to participate in the program, cultivation endorsements will be available in three sizes: 5,000 square feet, 20,000 square feet, and 30,000 square feet. Another big opportunity for smaller businesses is retail, since they will no longer have to grow and process it themselves.
On July 1st, application forms for permits will be available at www.nj.gov/health/medicalmarijuana. The date for announcing the awards will be determined based on application volume.
