BCEI Director, John Bailey said, “There still are a lot of questions in the New Jersey cannabis space.... as a matter of fact, many more questions than answers and this is a good opportunity to not only update and continue the social equity journey, but to also raise regulations and best practices questions. This cannabis journey is a long one and requires a deep historical dive. There are no quick fixes, and authentic engagement is a necessity.”
