The legalization of recreational adult use marijuana in New Jersey could mean a boost for tourism in the Garden State.
Cannabis tourism is a topic of discussion among those in the marijuana industry. That topic was brought directly to the New Jersey Conference on Tourism on Wednesday.
“California and Nevada and Colorado – they’re already doing cannabis tourism,” says John Fanburg, co-chair of the Cannabis Industry Practice at Brach Eichler.
Fanburg is a cannabis industry attorney and presented at the conference in Atlantic City on how New Jersey can boost its tourism by including cannabis in the mix. Other states have already seen success in this industry.
“You get on the 420 Bus and you drive out to the grow facility. You see how they do it, you see how they process it and then they have tasting rooms,” Fanburg says.
