Are you thinking of opening a marijuana business? You're not alone. 
Yesterday morning, hundreds applied for licenses after New Jersey began taking applications which include recreational facilities.   
In April of this year, a medical dispensary in Neptune opened its doors. Zen Leaf became only one of a few shore area dispensaries offering medical marijuana and that will change soon.  
Last week, New Jersey awarded 30 new licenses to medical facilities more than doubling the current number of 23 operating.   
Applications for dispensaries will begin to be accepted in March.
