And if it’s one of those weeks, she’s always generous with a line of credit, something that’s unthinkable at one of NJ’s 23 medical cannabis dispensaries.
“I know you’re good for it,” she’ll say. “Just get me next time.”
For years we’ve critiqued NJ’s long-languishing medical cannabis program on these pages. We’ve chronicled the program’s protracted “Train Wreck” phase and described “Why Black Market Weed (still) Beats NJ Dispensaries.”
