Ascend Fort Lee will be open for recreational weed order pick-ups on Thursday, NJ Advance Media has been told exclusively by the multi-state operator that owns the dispensary.
This dispensary received its site approval from the Fort Lee Planning Board late Monday, the last step the firm needed to begin adult weed sales and become the 21st store in New Jersey to offer recreational adult weed.
Montclair, which missed out on getting first crack at recreational marijuana sales when New Jersey allowed sales on April 21, is now looking at next month for adult-use sales.
Last week, the Township Council adopted a resolution allowing Ascend Wellness, which currently sells medical marijuana in town, to also sell adult-use cannabis.
Ascend's application for a state license is now with the state Cannabis Regulatory Commission, and company officials hope it will be approved at the CRC's next meeting on May 24.
