Legislation to set up New Jersey’s recreational marijuana industry is getting fast-tracked in the Democrat-led Legislature, with Assembly and Senate committees set to take up legislation on Thursday. The measure says the commission will adopt rules for the transition to a recreational marketplace in six months at the latest after the bill is signed into law. A month after that, the commission will begin accepting and processing applications for licenses. The legislation also tasks the state’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission, which currently oversees the medical marijuana industry, with overseeing and regulating the new marketplace.
