Bright and early for first legal weed sales in NJ
The first sales occurred before sunrise in Paterson and Bloomfield, where two RISE Dispensaries opened at 6 a.m.
Tony Marrero from Garfield was the third person in line. He said he had come to Paterson many times to buy weed, but this was the first time he was doing it legally, without fear of being arrested by the police officers stationed at the parking lot entrance.
“I’m excited, I feel like a kid in a candy store,” Marrero said. “Give me some of that, and some of that and a little of this.”
