Amid the imminent expansion of the Garden State’s medical marijuana program with up to 108 new licenses, NJ Cannabis Insider will host a meetup and networking session June 26 in Woodbridge.
Industry insiders say the ramp-up of the medical program would likely serve as the backbone for an adult-use — better known as recreational — market.
“Our mission is to serve the patients of New Jersey,” Jeff Brown, the assistant commissioner of the state Medicinal Marijuana Program, told NJ Cannabis Insider recently. “Twelve ATCs is not enough to do that.”
That means there’s ample room for growth, he said.
Brown and Kelley Crosson, vice president of the New Jersey Cannabis Industry Association, will be featured speakers at the summer meetup. Brown is the regulator charged with running the state medical program. Crosson is a horticulturist, designer and a leading cannabis advocate.
NJ Cannabis Insider’s Justin Zaremba will lead a short discussion on the anticipated expansion of the state Medicinal Marijuana Program, the current political landscape, and opportunities for entrepreneurs and professionals.
The meetup begins at 6 p.m. at JJ Bitting Brewing Co., 33 Main St. in Woodbridge. (The venue, which is next NJ Transit’s South Amboy station, has plenty of free parking.)
There are a limited number of tickets. For more information or register for the event, go here.
