Expanding the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program is key to New Jersey finally opening up legal weed sales for recreational purposes.

“We anticipate dynamic growth and development in the industry as the new entities become operational and the great potential of New Jersey’s adult-use market becomes a reality,” New Jersey Cannabis Trade Association President Shaya Brodchandel said in a statement. “Together, we have an exciting road ahead and look forward to working with these new licensees — and those to come — to continue building this growing industry.”

The process was halted for over a year due to a lawsuit by applicants whose applications were rejected due to a file format issue.

The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission on Friday voted 4 to 1 to issue 10 new licenses for medical marijuana cultivators and four new licenses for vertically integrated businesses, which grow, manufacture and sell medical marijuana at dispensaries.

“Approving additional cannabis growing, processing and dispensary licenses in the state will immensely help the program, providing patients with more variety and reducing their travel time to obtain their medicine,” Etain CEO Amy Peckam said. “We cannot wait to bring our high-quality products and formulations to the patients and customers of New Jersey.”

The cultivation licenses were awarded to:

The terms of the licenses issued Friday emphasized the importance of ensuring patients’ needs are met before worrying about legal weed. License holders must wait at least one year before applying for a permit to transition into recreational sales and cannot change ownership for two years.

The CRC did not release information about the licensees except for the region of the state in which they intended to operate.

TRENTON – The number of legal cannabis growers in the state will more than double after regulators on Friday issued new licenses designed to ease crippling supply issues for medical marijuana patients and push the state closer to legal weed sales for all adults.

The commission is expected to issue more permits for manufacturing, sale and delivery of medical marijuana in the coming months, as officials have remained steadfast that medical marijuana dispensaries won’t be allowed to sell legal weed for recreational use unless they can prove their patients needs are being met.

Within each category, conditional and microbusiness applications will be considered before standard, annual license applications. Conditional applicants are entrepreneurs who have a business plan but require state approval before bringing on investors or winning approval from a local municipality.

Conditional applicants are expected to eventually convert to a standard, annual license. Microbusiness license holders can but are not required to convert to an annual license.

The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission will officially begin accepting applications for marijuana cultivation centers, manufacturers and testing laboratories on Dec. 15.

The application process is a prelude to sales of recreational marijuana, approved by New Jersey voters in a 2020 ballot measure. The Cannabis Regulatory Commission hasn’t provided an estimate on when sales can begin.

The commission will begin accepting applications for recreational marijuana dispensaries on March 15.

CRC Executive Director Jeff Brown outlined the prioritization process regulators will use to determine which applications are handled first.

The panel approved the application dates in a meeting Tuesday.

TRENTON — After years of entrepreneurs and enthusiasts chomping at the bit to make their mark in the legal marijuana industry, the state will begin accepting license applications next month.
