NJ dispensary, legal weed business: List, map of every town – Asbury Park Press

With every day that goes by, New Jersey is – slowly, but surely – becoming a little greener.

Two years after the first legal weed sales began, 42% of all municipalities in New Jersey have opted into the cannabis industry in some shape or form, according to an Asbury Park Press analysis of municipal ordinances in all 564 towns across the state. It’s a slight uptick from April 2022, when just 38% of municipalities had opted in, buoyed by a spike of interest in retail dispensaries.

In April 2022, officials in just 135 municipalities had passed ordinances regulating dispensaries. As of this week, there were 166 towns – about 29% of all towns in the state.
