The commission responsible for establishing and enforcing rules and regulations for the New Jersey cannabis industry will hold an informational webinar this week.

The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (NJCRC) has announced the CRC Recreational Cannabis Statewide Informational Webinar on Tuesday, September 28, 2021.

According to NJCRC, the webinar will focus on the new adult-use cannabis regulations and how they apply to municipalities, community members, and potential industry entrants.

NJCRC says the webinar aims to increase awareness about accessing the cannabis industry in New Jersey’s 21 counties.

“The Zoom webinar will cover an overview of the recreational cannabis rules,” says NJCRC in a press release. “A breakdown of the social equity provisions, what potential applicants can do to prepare for applications, protections for financial service agreements and other contracts, and expectations for neighborhoods with cannabis businesses.”

The webinar will include an explanation of the initial rules regarding equity provisions, safety provisions, general guidance for municipalities, and an overview of available licenses for cultivation, manufacturing, retail, micro licenses, and conditional licenses.

The presentation will also cover basic applications requirements, emphasizing differences between conditional and annual licenses and reference to upcoming notice of application acceptance.

Additional topics include application preparation for businesses, expectations for CRC background investigations, introduction to medical savings accounts (MSA) and flexible spending accounts (FSA), and neighborhood expectations for cannabis businesses.

The webinar will also include information on CRC and external resources.

The session will conclude with a question and answer segment.
