Update: New Jersey Marijuana Dispensaries
By: Jason D. Briel, Esq.
As discussed in previous blogs, New Jersey has given the green light to six marijuana dispensaries. However, to date, only one has opened, with the other five not slated to open anytime soon.
This has put a strain on the sole open dispensary located at the Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair. It has been reported that waiting times for legally registered patients to receive their marijuana could be anywhere from several weeks to a few months. The Montclair dispensary only expected approximately 300 registered patients, but so far that number has more than doubled due to the failure of the other dispensaries to open their doors.
