MJ Biz are off the blocks with the story. As we always say it’s only just started now we move on to local jurisdictions within the state, testing issues and the inevitable dramas that come with dispensary licenses etc.

The fun has just started !

New Jersey lawmakers on Thursday approved legislation to regulate and launch an adult-use marijuana market next year that’s expected to become the largest on the East Coast with sales approaching $1 billion in a few years.

Passage of the implementation bill by the Assembly and the Senate comes six weeks after residents voted to legalize adult use at the ballot box.

The Assembly passed the measure by a vote of 49-24 with six abstentions, while the Senate passed the bill by a margin of 23-17 after several Senators railed against certain provisions. Some lawmakers and advocates have criticized the lack of transparency and wanted stronger social equity provisions.
