New Jersey Adult Use Cannabis Regulations
Executives from the state Cannabis Regulatory Commission (CRC) at the NJ League of Municipalities last week provided an overview of the newly adopted regulations to implement the legalization of adult recreational use of marijuana. The panel session, moderated by the president of the NJ League of Municipalities, Clinton Mayor Janice Kovach, featured CRC chair Dianna Houenou and executive director Jeff Brown.
Q. What are some of its biggest challenges the state faces in regulating the sale of cannabis?
According to New Jersey 101.5, cannabis-infused products like cookies, brownies, gummies or anything that "resembles food"—aside from lozenges—will not be permitted for sale in the state.
While the industry is frustrated with the state's lack of licensing approval, the article states that some groups seem OK with the state's infused products regulations.
As was discussed in detail during Foley Hoag’s recent New Jersey webinar, the adult-use regulations released by the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (“CRC”) contains several unanswered questions. For instance, when will the CRC begin accepting applications (they have already missed the statutory deadline)? How will applicants navigate the complexity of the local municipal approval process amidst towns seesawing between opt-ins and opt-outs?
The commission responsible for establishing and enforcing rules and regulations for the New Jersey cannabis industry will hold an informational webinar this week.
The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (NJCRC) has announced the CRC Recreational Cannabis Statewide Informational Webinar on Tuesday, September 28, 2021.
According to NJCRC, the webinar will focus on the new adult-use cannabis regulations and how they apply to municipalities, community members, and potential industry entrants.
