One of the dozens of tables was run by Shore Grow Hydro, a Monmouth County-based company that educates people on the process of home-growing. Co-owner Doug Glander, 33, of Manasquan, who also was at the 2019 convention, said there has been a shift in the variety of vendors this year.

The second annual Cannabis Convention will be held this weekend (Oct. 2 & 3) at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City. Event organizers say it is the state’s largest gathering of industry professionals and those looking to use the adult recreation market.
As quoted in the Courier Post, “NJCANN is designed for industry leaders, advocates, entrepreneurs, career and knowledge seekers, and the canna-curious to come together to learn and meet the people paving the way for New Jersey,” New England Cannabis Convention Founder and President Marc Shepard said.
