NJ legal weed: Recreational marijuana dispensary locations, rules – Asbury Park Press

Welcome back to the Jersey Shore!

If you’re a regular summertime visitor to our beaches and boardwalks, you’re probably aware that something has changed since the last time you were here: Yes, we now have legal weed for sale. 

Cannabis is now king in New Jersey and, as long as you’re over 21 years old, you’re allowed to walk into one of any 13 medical marijuana dispensaries across the Garden State and walk out with marijuana. 

In fact, the cannabis is counting on tourists from other states. Cannabis in New Jersey could be $3 billion industry, and the millions of potential visitors living within a few hours’ drive is a huge reason why industry executives pushed for New Jersey to beat out New York, Delaware and other mid-Atlantic states to the punch.
