|NJSBA Cannabis Law Committee Issues Report and Recommendations to NJ Cannabis Regulatory Committee
On Tuesday, July 13, 2021, the New Jersey State Bar Association Cannabis Law Committee provided the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Committee with a comprehensive Report detailing issues with the Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance, and Marketplace Modernization Act (“CREAMMA”), and proposing recommendations to resolve those concerns. The Report was presented with the goal of clarifying apparent ambiguities, providing further transparency, and remedying apparent inconsistencies identified in CREAMMA.
In doing so, the Report identifies twelve (12) overarching topics on various issues of concern and provides a recommendation for each; including: (i) lab testing, (ii) regulation of cannabis, (iii) marketplace regulations of recreational cannabis, (iv) marketplace regulation pertaining to hemp, (v) licensing, (vi) microbusiness and conditional licensing, (vii) municipal/land use, (viii) taxes, (ix) taxes, (x) impact zones, (xi) acute impairment considerations, (xii) expungement, and (xiii) family law considerations.
Ansell Grimm & Aaron attorneys Joshua S. Bauchner, co-chair of the Cannabis Law Committee, and Zachary L. Windham, a committee member, led the effort in conjunction with Lisa Gora, co-chair, and Sarah Trent, secretary. The Report was informed by the contributions of numerous Committee members across multiple disciplines, as reflected in the appendix.
