US (NJ): Regulatory Commission approves 71 licenses

The NJ Cannabis Regulatory Commission (NJCRC) approved 71 cannabis licenses and failed to renew Curaleaf’s adult-use cannabis license due to labor and social equity issues.

NJCRC Executive Director Jeff Brown said it’s five years since they began expanding the medical cannabis program under Governor Phil Murphy (D).

“We’ve come a long way. We have a much longer way to go,” he noted. The NJCRC approved 62 conditionals, three conversions to annual licenses, which allows them to open, and six annual applications for 71 New Jersey cannabis licenses.

“Over 207 conditional to conversion applications have been submitted that are being reviewed,” Brown said.
