New Jersey Conditional Licenses out | Heady NJ’s Dan Ulloa Reports

As New Jersey’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission met late last month, those closely watching the state’s push toward legal weed thought history would be made and the stage would be set for sales to begin sometime this spring.

However, the panel rejected eight applications from medical marijuana dispensaries – formally known as alternative treatment centers – to also sell adult recreational cannabis.

This decision means that New Jersey will not have any retail outlets selling adult-use cannabis until at least later this year. This is a major setback for those hoping to start businesses in the state’s nascent legal weed industry.

The good news is that New Jersey still has a robust medical marijuana program, which serves tens of thousands of patients. So while there won’t be any legal recreational weed for the foreseeable future, New Jerseyans will still be able to access medical cannabis.

The commission did approve 17 other licenses, which means that some progress is being made. However, it remains to be seen when sales will actually begin and how long it will take for the market to fully develop.

In the meantime, New Jersey residents will just have to wait a little bit longer to legally purchase recreational cannabis.
