Morristown, NJ's first dispensary comes from … Massachusetts? – New Jersey 101.5 FM

A commenter on the Instagram page of the town of Morristown, New Jersey, said the first thing I was thinking when I read the news about its first dispensary.

Why Massachusetts owners?

There’s a part of me that was really hoping some native New Jerseyans would be able to cash in on this new and soon-to-be booming industry.

Already operating in Pepperell and Waltham, Massachusetts, Uma Flowers has been awarded the license for Morristown’s first dispensary.

Started last December by sisters-in-law Priyanka and Tejal Patel, Uma edged out five other applicants to secure the license from the Morristown council, perhaps because of the allure of the company being family-owned, women-led, and according to its website, “safe, pure, and clean.”

According to the city’s Instagram feed, Uma Flowers’ plan is to lease a former Budget car rental agency and auto repair shop on 102 Ridgedale Ave.

The site is on a busy stretch of road, across from a former State Motor Vehicle Inspection Station, a bank, and a lumberyard, near the Morris Township border.

Uma Flowers emphasizes safety over and over again on its website. They believe that cannabis can bring about positive changes for overall health and wellness and say they want to be the link between

Long Planned Kosa Dispensary Opens In Marlborough – Patch

MARLBOROUGH, MA — Marlborough’s third cannabis retail store — in the works since late 2019 — opened its doors on Wednesday.

Kosa Dispensary, 505 Boston Post Road, was first proposed by owner Jigar Patel in late 2019, and was known as Vedi Naturals at the time. The Marlborough City Council granted Patel permission to open in August 2020, and the state Cannabis Control Commission gave the business in late 2021.

The business describes itself as a “premium adult-use marijuana dispensary.”

“We believe consumers can yield positive, and life-energizing experiences through responsible and ethical consumption of cannabis with pure intentions!” the Kosa website says.

Kosa’s opening completes a mini cannabis hub along the Boston Post Road. Garden Remedies, 416 Boston Post Road, was the first to open in Marlborough in 2019 following by Local Roots, 910 Boston Post Road, in 2021.

Kosa is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day except Sunday, when the hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

California Cannabis Claims: Conversion

We’re back with the newest part in our series on common California cannabis claims. Today, we’ll be covering one we often see in the context of buyer v. seller disputes: conversion.

How does California define a conversion claim?

The technical definition of conversion is “the wrongful exercise of dominion over the personal property of another.” It essentially means that the defendant interfered with the plaintiff’s right to possession of tangible property (not including real property). If a conversion claim is found, the plaintiff is entitled to recover the full value of the property. The plaintiff may also be entitled to punitive and other additional damages in certain contexts (more on that below). As I mentioned above, we typically see this claim pop up when a seller provides product to a buyer but doesn’t get paid – since the seller hasn’t received the benefit of the bargain, the buyer’s continued possession of the product could form the basis of a California cannabis claim for conversion.

Statute of limitations

The statute of limitations for conversion is three years. This means the claim needs to be filed within three years of the wrongful taking. There are exceptions to this rule though. First, if

Fundraising to Save Farmland – Flathead Beacon

As the founder and CEO of a fundraising software company, Scot Chisholm was exposed to a variety of nonprofit organizations before he left his position a year ago. After a decade in the business, he moved on to start his own nonprofit to pair with a dispensary and retail shop in Whitefish.

Chisholm and his business partner Craig McViney officially opened Haskill Creek Farms on Voerman Road just outside of Whitefish, which operates as a dispensary and retail shop on 35 acres. The mural on the east side of the building that displays “Save Farmland” in giant letters illustrates the separate aspect of Haskill Creek – a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving agriculture.

“We knew we wanted Haskill Creek to support something and donate a portion of the proceeds to,” Chisholm said. “People in the valley said they were worried about the rapid development and the loss of agriculture and farm life.”

Chisholm launched Save Farmland, which was recently established as a 501c3, and will be model after the Nature Conservancy, where farmland is purchased while providing agricultural education on the property.

Cannabis trends to watch: Deli-style dispensary – AZ Big Media

Cannabis has been legal in Arizona for more than a year and is proving to be a multi-billion-dollar industry. Although there are cannabis trends to watch and there has been an uptick in new, trendy ways to consume weed (like edibles and vapes), many cannabis users are loyal to smoking the traditional flower.

READ ALSO: Here’s why Arizona cannabis sales are expected to blossom

Although vapes, edibles and other forms of consuming cannabis have an element of convenience, smoking marijuana has a deep-rooted, rich culture—which is why people may prefer this method of medicating. Also, other forms have different effects. For example, edibles, which are high in psychoactive properties, might be too strong from the beginning cannabis user—especially if they take too high of a dosage. Therefore, beginners may want to start with flower, so they can slowly introduce themselves to how cannabis impacts their bodies.

Marie Saloum is the owner and founder of GreenPharms.

One popular way to purchase flower is by going to a deli-style dispensary. Deli-style dispensaries are exactly what they sound like. Customers have a case with a wide selection of different types of cannabis—including
