Camden cannabis consumers can now legally grab a bag without even getting out of their cars.
Organic Farms, the city’s newest recreational cannabis dispensary, opened with a soft launch on Monday. It comes with what owner Dominic Rivera says is a milestone for South Jersey marijuana — the area’s first cannabis drive-thru window.
“There’s going to be a couple more coming up in the future,” said Rivera, a 51-year-old Camden native. “But we’re the first around here.”
New Jersey’s recreational cannabis industry launched one year ago, and Dominic Rivera is nearly $1 million in debt.
The Camden man thought his drive-through dispensary would be open by now, but it took 13 months to get the state to OK his application — approval he received just last week. In the meantime, he is nearly finished with construction, has hired nine employees, and has spent thousands on electricity for a store that can’t have any customers yet.
