New Jersey’s adult-use marijuana market will open its doors next April 21, one day after 4/20, state Governor Phil Murphy announced via Twitter.
“Starting April 21, adults 21 and older will be able to legally purchase cannabis and cannabis products without a medical card. This is a historic step in our work to create a new industry,” Murphy said in a tweet.
According to Marijuana Moment, seven medical cannabis businesses have so far been authorized to serve the recreational market and have a total of 13 dispensaries across the state.
“This is an exciting time for New Jersey,” said Cannabis Regulatory Commission Executive Director Jeff Brown in a press release.
“I am very proud of the work the Commission has done over the last year to open the market. We have been intentional in doing everything in our power to put the market on a good footing, to begin with,” he also said.
It is worth mentioning that in New Jersey voters approved recreational marijuana use in November 2020.
This new market is expected to leave substantial revenues. MJBizDaily projects that recreational marijuana sales in the state will gradually increase from $625 million to $775 million by 2022.
