New Jersey continues to see more and more cannabis dispensaries officially setting up shop, with Harrison’s first legal storefront launching this week.
San Francisco, Calif.-born cannabis brand Cookies expanded its East Coast footprint with its debut New Jersey store Aug. 16 at 331 Angelo Cifelli Drive, right across from Red Bull Arena.
The flagship shop’s menu includes proprietary flower cultivars, pre-rolls and vapes. It also offers glass, accessories and local reserve apparel that pays homage to both the Garden State and the City of Harrison.
It’s another cannabis market win for Central Jersey.
Leaf Haus will have a grand-opening celebration Aug. 17, as it becomes the third legal weed shop to open to customers 21 and over in Somerset County.
The store is located at 900 Easton Ave, Suite 18 in Franklin Township’s Somerset Village shopping center, next to H&R Block.
Leaf Haus is a small store with a large product selection to choose from.
“We are extremely excited about opening our flagship store in New Jersey,” “Berner,” the co-founder and CEO of Cookies, said. “Our team has taken their time with attention to detail — not only with the build-out of the store, but also with the product, which has gotten more and more dialed-in from our work with our cultivation partners in Jersey. I’m blessed to be touring on the East Coast and have the chance to visit the store prior to opening. I can’t wait for our New Jersey community to experience our first Cookies store in New Jersey.”

Empowering Change with Every Leaf: New Era Dispensary
HoneyGrove touts "an inviting environment (and) a comfortable space custom built for an enjoyable-yet-purposeful experience," according to its website. The new facility will open during the following hours:
Monday through Saturday: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday: 12-5 p.m.
Wednesday will also mark HoneyGrove's grand opening.
HoneyGrove will become the second dispensary to open in the township. The first is MPX NJ (581 Berlin-Cross Keys Rd., Sicklerville), which offers both medical and recreational weed.
Wholesale-Class Three License: A marijuana wholesaler license, also called a Class 3 license in New Jersey, allows the holder to purchase or obtain, store, sell or transfer, and transport marijuana products for resale or to other cannabis wholesalers or retailers.
This is the borough’s first retail recreation license and second license issued overall. The first license was for a medicinal marijuana operator, Aunt Mary’s Dispensary.
The new recreational cannabis retailer is set to be located at the now closed 25 Burgers location in Flemington at 313 U.S. Route 202.
The Township Committee voted in December to allow the municipality to receive proposals for retail sales of cannabis.
Now that a business, New Frontier Solutions LLC, is interested in setting up shop in the township, some residents are not happy about it.
"We thought they (the Township Committee) had our best interests at heart. That was a big mistake," said Sharon Corsiglia, 74, who has lived in the township for more than 50 years.
Mayor William Ruggieri declined to comment, citing the pending application.
The SD-3 zone is located in the area between Mill Street and Route 206/94 around and adjacent to North Park Driven and South Park Drive.
Work continues on a Sunset Boulevard property that’s set to become Cape May County’s first legal cannabis dispensary.
The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission approved a class 5 retail license for Tomas Nuscis for Shore House Canna LLC in March. The business had originally planned to open its doors by April 20, often described as a weed holiday, and later advertised a June 30 opening.
Now, the store hopes to begin serving customers by Labor Day.
“We’re a little hesitant to put a date on it,” said Nicole Melchiorre, one of the principals of Shore House Canna.
