Recreational marijuana sales in New Jersey are expected to start in a couple of weeks. The state’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission on Monday approved seven medical marijuana dispensaries for adult-use sales. These locations will be the first sites to sell recreational cannabis to adults 21 years old and older.
Before these locations can begin selling, they still have to complete a few more steps, including inspections and paying fees. There isn’t a set date for when residents can buy marijuana yet, but once dispensaries finish their process, they can begin sales.
Initially, a handful of sites already operating as medicinal dispensaries will be able to expand into the adult-use market. So far, the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (CRC) has approved 13 dispensaries, known officially as Alternative Treatment Clinics (ATCs), for recreational sales. The sites are run by seven operators including Acreage Holdings, Ascend New Jersey, Columbia Care, Curaleaf, Green Thumb Industries, TerrAscend, and Verano Holdings.
Recreational marijuana sales in New Jersey for those 21 and older will begin April 21, Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy said Thursday.
“This is a historic step in our work to create a new cannabis industry,” said Murphy, who made the announcement via Twitter.
