Still, as countless towns across the state debate whether to allow dispensaries (and in many cases deciding that the answer is no), Stockton’s poll is an indication that New Jerseyans overall remain supportive of legal weed.
The poll additionally asked about cannabis consumption lounges; respondents were narrowly in favor (49%-45%) of allowing such lounges in their towns, and were similarly split (48%-45%) on lounges and cannabis-themed attractions being allowed in tourist towns.
New York-based design firm Wolfgang & Hite worked on plans for the 16,000-square-foot space, which is now looking to add a “class 5 adult-use retail facility” and consumption lounge to the complex. A new application seeking the changes was submitted to the city by the company on August 31.
The Jersey City Cannabis Control Board convened for the first time in a month on Sept. 12 to process the next round of retail cannabis applicants in the city before them.
In total, the board approved four applicants and denied three. The four approved included Aunt Mary’s in McGinley Square; Bud Space, Cream Dispensary and Cannaboutique by Greenhouse, who are all in Downtown.
The board also denied Canabee, who would’ve been located in the Heights, and two other applicants, Artistic Dispensary and Idyllx, for being too similar to each other.
So, how much does it cost to operate a dispensary in New Jersey?
The cost of opening a dispensary in New Jersey is likely between $250,000 to $2,000,000. The variance is due to several cost factors, including where your dispensary is located and the type of license you acquire. Opening a micro business dispensary costs less than the projected amount.

The Springfield Planning Board on Monday night approved an application for the township's first marijuana dispensary.
Story Dispensary of Springfield, LLC would open at 130 Route 22, to fill a vacancy in a multi-tenant space that also houses Advance Auto Parts and Touka, a Japanese hibachi restaurant.
Dumpsters will be maintained by the proprietor of the business, and there will be no curbside pickup of orders at the site. All customers would be required to enter the building in order to make a purchase.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation Wednesday morning to legalize adult-use, recreational cannabis in New York and create the country’s second-largest recreational marijuana market.
During the tumultuous weeks and months of the past year, a nine-letter word emerged as a game changer for the nation’s legal marijuana industry: “essential.”
It began about a week after the World Health Organization on March 11 declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic.
That’s when California announced a statewide business lockdown, followed by Illinois.
Both states also designated marijuana operators as “essential” – along with pharmacies, supermarkets and liquor stores – and those businesses were allowed to stay open.
A 17-person town “Cannabis Commission” is tasked with taking a hard look at how Westfield should handle New Jersey’s recent legalization of marijuana.
Mayor Shelley Brindle this week announced the formation of the commission to address legalized weed, including the town’s decisions on marijuana dispensaries.
“The recent legalization of marijuana here in New Jersey will raise many questions for every community about if and how it plans to move forward with regard to dispensaries on the local level,” Brindle said at Tuesday’s town council meeting.
A lot of the people in New Jersey who voted for legal cannabis back in November — about two-thirds of voters — not to mention those who want to get in on the ground floor of the nascent business — are wondering when will the stuff be available?
Pure Oasis, both the first recreational marijuana dispensary in Boston and the first Black-owned pot shop in Massachusetts, was among the many businesses hit by looting early Monday morning in the city.
Kobie Evans, a co-owner of Pure Oasis, told The Boston Globe that more than a dozen people entered the store after breaking through a large window around 1:43 a.m. Monday and stole roughly 2,000 pre-rolled joints and 2,000 containers of marijuana flower worth more than $100,000.
