New Jersey legalized adult-use cannabis in November 2020, but the state is an outlier among legal markets in limiting edibles products to “syrups, pills, tablets, capsules and chewables,” according to the newspaper.

The proposal can’t be approved until December.
Weed brownies and THC-infused drinks are coming to dispensaries across New Jersey after the state’s cannabis regulators voted to relax restrictions on edibles Friday, nearly a year and a half after legal recreational marijuana sales started in New Jersey.
When the Cannabis Regulatory Commission first drafted rules in August 2021, it opted not to allow the sale of edibles that resemble food, citing difficulties in regulating kitchen environments. At that time, commissioners approved the sale of only non-perishable edibles, like lozenges and gummies.
