In New Jersey, the recreational marijuana law directed the state to begin sales Feb. 22 – six months after rules and regulations were to be established by the Cannabis Regulatory Commission.
The state started taking business applications in December and, earlier this month, approved Florida-based Metrc to manage its seed-to-sale tracking system.
But Jeff Brown, the commission’s executive director, said there are obstacles to launching next month, including a lack of municipal buy-in, NJ.com reported.
“There’s still a lot to be done,” he told NJ Cannabis Insider. “Feb. 22 is not a concrete date to open.
“There is no firm commitment on timing of when recreational sales will begin.”
