We have all been wondering which New Jersey cities would opt-in for cannabis retail sales. Ever since the November 2020 elections and New Jersey legalized adult-use cannabis throughout the state.
Municipalities were provided an opportunity to decide whether or not they would accept cannabis businesses within their borders. The municipalities had the deadline of August, 21, 2021. At this time they were to formally announce if they would be participating in New Jersey’s Adult-Use cannabis market. During this process, the municipalities were able to determine which license types would allow. Secondly, they were able to choose the appropriate zoning requirements surrounding these business types. Thirdly, the municipalities were able to decide the limitations on the amount of licenses. They also created local ordinances to outline additional compliance requirements set forth by the municipality. Many municipalities opted out of cannabis business residencies in their communities. Those municipalities will still maintain the ability to reverse that decision and opt in to adult-use cannabis sales and operations. The Cannabis Regulatory Commission can approve the change at any time.
We have the list of New Jersey cities who have chosen to opt-in for cannabis retail sales here.
