What marijuana/cannabis businesses can you start in New Jersey?
Although the Garden State’s medical marijuana program was signed into law in 2010, implementation has been slow. Currently, it serves only about 5,236 patients out of an estimated tens of thousands, through only five operational treatment centers, despite having been made law more than four years ago.
Another obstacle facing patients in New Jersey is the fact that not all doctors can recommend medical marijuana. Unlike other states with medical marijuana laws in effect, only doctors who register with the state are allowed to qualify patients for New Jersey’s program.
Currently the state is not actively licensing any medical marijuana businesses.
What can you do right now?
To get ahead and be prepared for when the state will start licensing marijuana businesses, you should:
- Get a marijuana company business plan to understand costs associated with setting up a marijuana business, as well as projected revenues and financials that will allow you to decide whether this venture is for you or not, as well as be used for licensing purposes when the state allows marijuana businesses to apply for licenses.
