In recent years, the demand for legal weed at New Jersey dispensaries has been on the rise. However, the price of cannabis products remains a concern for many consumers. Despite this, some dispensaries have started offering an eighth-ounce of cannabis for as little as $20, making it more accessible to a wider range of customers.
Law enforcement authorities have been cracking down on illegal marijuana operations, leading to significant seizures of suspected raw marijuana and marijuana-infused food products. In a recent operation, police seized over 23 pounds of suspected raw marijuana and more than $17,000 in cash. These efforts aim to ensure that only licensed and regulated dispensaries are supplying cannabis products to the public.
One dispensary owner, Dominic Rivera, expressed his ambition for Camden to become the East Coast hub for cannabis. However, he also emphasized the importance of not oversaturating the market. With the opening of Organic Farms, a recreational marijuana dispensary in Camden, Rivera hopes to cater to the growing demand while maintaining a balanced market.
