A New Jersey state trade association has said that medical cannabis dispensaries in the state now have enough supply to start selling adult-use marijuana without disrupting access to MMJ patients.
The New Jersey Cannabis Trade Association said that dispensaries in the state, “have been working non-stop and investing substantial time, money and resources into expanding their operations to prepare for recreational sales – hiring more staff, building more distribution centers, expanding cultivation sites.”
“They are ready to open for adult-use sales today.”
According to a NJ.com report, New Jersey’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission doesn’t feel the same way. Last month state regulators had awarded 14 new medical cannabis business licenses and the commission’s executive director, Jeff Brown, said the state’s cannabis supply isn’t keeping up with the increasing patient pool.
The commission has a deadline of February 2022 to set a date for when adult-use sales might begin, but the panel has already missed other key deadlines.
