Gov. Phil Murphy says that it could be the middle of next year before recreational marijuana is for sale in New Jersey. The governor made the comments on News 12’s “Ask Gov. Murphy” on Tuesday.
The state’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission was scheduled to open applications for marijuana businesses licenses this past weekend, but so far has not.
“We are on the threshold of the industry,” says Edmund DeVeaux, president of the New Jersey Cannabusiness Association.
“This is the threshold. This is where we’re about to cross over into that great expanse that we call the adult-use market.”
But it is not known when the Cannabis Regulatory Commission will open applications.
