The regulations also provide more flexibility for microbusinesses by clarifying that areas where cannabis is not handled—such as breakrooms and bathrooms—do not count toward the 2,500-square-foot limit put in place by the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance, and Marketplace Modernization Act, which initially created the adult-use marketplace, NJBIZ reported.The proposed rules would also codify New Jersey’s adult-use cannabis sales limits at 1 ounce of flower, 4 grams of extracts or concentrates, and 1,000 mg of THC in edible form, according to the news outlet.The regulations would also require adult-use dispensaries to provide consumers with information on safe cannabis use, NJBIZ reported.The proposed rules also codify the CRC’s licensing process, which prioritizes social equity business applications, according to the news outlet.RELATED: Social Equity and Hiring in New Jersey’s Nascent Adult-Use Cannabis Industry: How to Get It Right“The…
