Starting a Commercial Cannabis Grow Operation in New Jersey

How to start a commercial grow operation in New Jersey - ILGM

Medical marijuana 

Medical marijuana was legalized in 2010 for specific medical conditions. The New Jersey medical cannabis program is regulated by the Department of Health. Growing operations take place within dispensaries known as Alternative Treatment Centers (ATCs).


Recreational Marijuana

New Jersey approved a constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana for adult use on November 2, 2020 by a ratio of about 2 to 1.

New Jersey became the first state in the Mid-Atlantic region to adopt legal cannabis, creating a potential $2 billion market and making it likely that criminal arrests for marijuana will be curtailed. 

License Requirements

The application fee for the program was $2,000, and the license fee was $18,000. Current owners may transfer their ownership for a $20,000 fee.
