Cannabis Law

The Green Industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the United States. Sales of legal cannabis in the U.S. amounted to nearly $10 billion in 2018 alone, and this is only expected to increase in the future.

The attorneys at Singer Law provide cannabis legal services to clients throughout the State of New Jersey.

At Middlesex County cannabis law firm of Singer Law, our knowledgeable and adept attorneys have helped entrepreneurs navigate and master the complex medical commercial cannabis regulatory framework in New Jersey.

In order to acquire a license to run a fruitful and compliant cannabis facility, first, you must first execute a surfeit of paperwork and send it to the Department of Health. At this time, the State of New Jersey is not accepting additional applications to open additional Alternative Treatment Centers (“ATC”). There are currently six approved and opened ATCs in New Jersey.

However, the addition of new qualifying debilitating medical conditions that a patient must have in order to register for the Medical Marijuana Program has substantially increased the demand for medical marijuana. Governor Phil Murphy announced major reforms which focus on ways to increase access to medical marijuana and to limit obstacles that patients must contend with when they are seeking access to medicinal marijuana. New Jersey will once again be seeking applicants who want to open new ATCs throughout the State. The Ocean County cannabis law attorneys of Singer Law can help you with this process.

Also, New Jersey is on the path to join some other states that allow the sale and use of recreational marijuana. The Toms River cannabis law attorneys will be there when this inevitable event occurs. Contact Singer Law now so that you are ready when the laws change.

The new application process will likely require you to submit, along with your application, your plans for the proposed facility. The Department of Health will likely request information for background checks, zoning, source of funds documentation, distance requirements, ownership verification and many other seemingly unrelated information. Our Monmouth cannabis attorneys are here to help you so that when the Medical Marijuana Program expands, you can hit the ground running.

There will likely be other regulatory issues with which the Freehold cannabis lawyers of Singer Law can help you and your business to comply. For example, there will likely be strict rules regarding cultivation and inventory, as well as labeling and record-keeping requirements. As well, there will be minimum standards for the building in which the facility is located. Finally, all cannabis will likely need to be securely grown, stored, weighed, inventoried, displayed and sold.

Repercussions for noncompliance with New Jersey’s marijuana laws and statutes can be severe and can put your business in jeopardy. Depending on the harshness of the offense, penalties can include an administrative hearing, a fine, loss of licensure, or the closure of the facility. It will be vital to ensure that you comply with New Jersey’s cannabis laws.
