A four-year old dispensary in Secaucus is poised to become the first non-profit medical marijuana dispensary to offer adult weed in the Garden State.
Harmony Foundation is expected to go before the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission Thursday for final state approvals to expand into the adult recreational weed market at its Secaucus alternative treatment center at 600 Meadowlands Parkway, a top Harmony executive confirmed to NJ Advance Media.
“This is an exciting step forward for Harmony, and, we believe, for the growing cannabis industry in New Jersey,” Shaya Brodchandel, President and CEO of Harmony, said in a statement. “By seeking to become the first New Jersey-based ATC to be granted an expansion into the adult-use market we are showing that cannabis businesses born in this state have the ability to join those multi-state operators and thrive, reinvesting our successes into our local communities.
“We believe that we have met all of the obligations put in place by regulators, and are ready to join the dual market,” added Brodchandel.
Harmony is one of the original six alternative treatment centers (ATCs) approved in the state. It began operating in June 2018 under the state’s Medicinal Cannabis Program as both a cultivation and dispensary facility.
