Marijuana social lounges could be a new hang-out spot for cannabis enthusiasts now that recreational marijuana is legal in New Jersey.
It would essentially be a licensed public place where adults can partake in marijuana use with other adults.
“The town and state commission, cannabis regulatory commission, have to approve the cannabis consumption area to operate within the space of a retail operation,” says attorney Bill Beneduce.
Since the legislation of legalized marijuana, some towns have already issued a ban on cannabis businesses. But Beneduce says that he is optimistic about the future of cannabusinesses in New Jersey.
“I think it’s going to be an exciting start to anti-prohibition to the marijuana industry. It’s going to be a big boom to the New Jersey industry. It’s going to change the state and a welcomed change,” he says.
