Fairleigh Dickinson hosts conference for cannabis entrepreneurs
Fairleigh Dickinson University held a conference on Thursday for entrepreneurs in the recreational marijuana industry.
There were panel discussions geared toward those who were interested in getting involved with all of the jobs associated with growing and selling pot. Those who came said that they were glad to see the stigma surrounding cannabis is dissipating.
“We are seeing with the adult-use cannabis laws in the state as lot of information being passed around – a lot of excitement – and a lot of that stigma finally being lifted,” says Sarah Trent with the group New Jersey Cannabis Certified.
New Jersey residents voted to approve legalized marijuana in 2020. But the program has seen setback after setback getting off the ground. State lawmakers are now looking to investigate what is causing the holdup.
