X Marks the Spot: Which Garden State Municipalities Are Still in Play 

Presenter: Jennifer Cabrera

If there's one thing that we know about starting a cannabis business, it's that location is key. New Jersey municipalities were given the option to "opt out" or place license caps on the available cannabis licenses, making the search for a viable property difficult. Now, with licenses being issued at the state and local levels, it is even more difficult to find a good property within a municipality that still has available licenses. Attorney Jennifer Cabrera of Vicente Sederberg LLP has some tricks up her sleeve for navigating this roadblock. Attend this hot-topic session for strategic guidance on all things municipal, ranging from the property search to becoming a good community partner. During the session, we will uncover the municipalities that will host cannabis businesses, identify best practices for conducting community outreach, and explain the basic steps for preparing a competitive local application.
