Five new medical marijuana-grow businesses are coming to Central New Jersey — but it's currently unknown which towns they will open in.
Last Friday, Oct. 15, the state's Cannabis Regulatory Commission granted licenses to a total of 10 new marijuana cultivation businesses to grow marijuana for medical use only: Three will open in North Jersey, five will open in Central Jersey and two were approved for South Jersey.
To staff the budding industry, Stockton University will host a cannabis career fair and business expo on Sept. 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The vendor area, where cannabis businesses can advertise and sell their legal products, will be free and open to the public. Vendors interested in participating can register for $300 by phone through the Stockton University Office of Continuing Studies by Aug. 28. The OCS can be reached at (609) 652-4227.
