NEW JERSEY: It’s not easy to open — and keep open — a business. It’s especially not a simple walk in the park if your enterprise is focused on the medical marijuana industry. Yet the industry, as a whole, has experienced phenomenal growth in states promoting progressive enabling laws. But for New Jersey’s funded program, the last three years have yielded, in varying stages of development, three dispensaries, only one of which currently has its shingle out.
Make no mistake, the road to euphoric profits in New Jersey is far from being just a hazy, distant pipe dream. Economic growth is close at hand. While New Jersey sees the need to make it easier to open dispensaries by implementing ways to streamline their business qualification process, the renowned educators at the Cannabis Career Institute (CCI) are working to prepare and educate entrepreneurs on the right way to get their business permit and have the knowledge not only to be qualified to open on the first try, but keep their business flourishing ahead of the growing national competitive tide.
