BURLINGTON COUNTY, NJ — A new marijuana dispensary has opened in Burlington County, as local governing bodies continue to discuss how recreational marijuana will be regulated within their jurisdictions.
Curaleaf has opened a dispensary in Edgewater Park, the company announced last week. With the new site, Curaleaf said it has tripled the company’s cultivation capabilities to serve both the existing New Jersey medical market and the forthcoming adult-use market.
Its other facility, in Winslow Township, is now fully operational following its first harvest, the company announced. Another center will open in Central New Jersey later this summer, according to the company.
“We are thrilled to grow alongside New Jersey’s flourishing medical community and expand access to best-in-class cannabis products to patients in Edgewater Park,” Curaleaf CEO Joe Bayern said. “We continue to work closely with state leadership and regulators to create a successful and sustainable adult-use market, and our expansion positions us to meet the market’s increasing needs while creating hundreds of new jobs in the state.”
The announcement comes after officials in Cinnaminson introduced ordinances to permit marijuana dispensaries to open in the township, and to tax them. Moorestown Council was set to have a discussion about marijuana dispensaries Monday night.
