The out-of-state cannabis corporation Multi-State Operator (MSO) Justice Grown opened its 1st and New Jersey’s 25th medical cannabis dispensary on Saturday.
They will do so after being one of the six companies awarded a vertically integrated medical cannabis license in 2018.
Justice Grown is the last of the companies licensed in 2018 to open their first location. Most of those licensed already have the three locations they are permitted open. The first companies awarded in 2019 began opening their locations in 2019.
The NJ Cannabis Regulatory Commission (NJCRC) announced it on Thursday via Twitter.
Along with New Jersey, Justice Grown has licensed operations in Pennsylvania, California, Massachusetts, Missouri, Utah, and Michigan.
The other open New Jersey medical cannabis dispensaries are:
