The commission is set to meet for its monthly meeting Thursday, where it will discuss an array of topics, including making curbside pickup and home delivery permanent, bringing down the cost of medical marijuana cards, and approving another 81 cannabis licenses.
But notably missing from the agenda are two long-awaited topics: workplace regulations for employers who suspect a worker is high on the job, and the approval of edibles like brownies, cookies, and chocolate bars.
“There’s certainly enough out there on the illegal market that is desired by a lot of patients,” said Ken Wolski, executive director of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey. “I would hope that they are moving quickly through the regulatory process, but it doesn’t look like it’ll happen this month.”
Toni-Anne Blake, spokeswoman for the cannabis commission, declined to comment on the agenda for Thursday’s meeting. She said the commission will not speculate on when it will take these issues up.
The commission’s director, Jeff Brown, said at its June 30 meeting that the workplace guidance would be coming “very imminently.”
