Dozens of business owners hoping to sell medical marijuana in New Jersey say they’re fed up. After they applied for licenses to sell in 2019, the state’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission has yet to give them approval.
The commission held a public meeting Tuesday night where they approved another grow site for Harmony Foundation, a medical marijuana dispensary, which already operates a facility in Secaucus.
Every cannabis entrepreneur has their reasons for getting into the space. Some of them simply love the plant while others see it as a cash grab.
And then you have seasoned entrepreneurs like Bershan Shaw who want to make a difference in cannabis because they know this plant saves lives.
Shaw experienced it firsthand as a two-time breast cancer survivor (stage II and then stage IV), who turned to cannabis in her greatest time of need.
