Rockaway NJ legal marijuana dispensary Morris County’s first – Daily Record

ROCKAWAY — Nearly three years after New Jersey residents overwhelmingly voted to legalize marijuana sales for recreational use, Morris County’s first retail cannabis dispensary is open for business.

Following a soft launch in late July, Kind Kush held a grand opening on Aug. 19 in the Rockaway Borough shopping center along Route 46 anchored by Tractor Supply Co.

“The mayor was kind enough to come out and cut the ribbon, which was very exciting,” owner-operator Jimmy Rogovich said in an interview Tuesday. A resident of Cresskill in Bergen County, he formerly owned Rogo’s sports bar in Hoboken with his brothers.

Kind Kush fills only a small sliver of the 40,000-square-foot building, which was formerly occupied by World Gym and, before that, a Shop-Rite. Customers visiting the dispensary must present identification to advance from a small lobby into the retail shop, where large-screen TVs display product availability and price.

What’s on sale at Kind Kush

Packaged goods include cannabis sold in natural flower-bud form, in 3.5 or 7-gram bags, pre-rolled joints, edibles, vape cartridges, concentrates and other varieties, along with accessories. Prices range from about $15 for a pre-rolled 1-gram joint to more than $100 for a 7-gram pack of buds.
