Underground Legacy Operator NJWeedman Goes Legit, Gets Green Light To Open Legal Cannabis Dispensary
The Trenton City Council has approved Ed Forchion - a notorious figure in the underground legacy who goes by the nickname NJWeedman - to open a legal New Jersey cannabis dispensary, reported Heady NJ.
The marijuana activist pushed to convert his NJWeedman’s Joint across the street from Trenton City Hall into a legal dispensary under the name NJWeedman’s.
“This is a long time coming,” NJWeedman said to the council, explaining he has a conditional New Jersey cannabis dispensary license from the NJ Cannabis Regulatory Commission (NJ-CRC). “This month, 26 years ago, was my first felony arrest for selling marijuana. Here I am asking the city council to approve my resolution to, among other things, sell marijuana legally.”
