On Monday, April 12th, New Jersey’s newly founded Cannabis Regulatory Commission held it’s first public meeting.

In the 45-minute virtual meeting, the five members of the CRC discussed the developing New Jersey marijuana industry.

Chair Diana Hoeunou remarked that it would take a few weeks for the committee to expand its staff and create regulations. Gov. Murphy has said before that it could take six months for recreational marijuana to be made available.

The panel also voted to elect Sam Delgado, former Marine and executive of Verizon, as the vice chair. Delgado shared his story of being arrested for the possession of cannabis in 1975, which gives him first-hand perspective on the harmful nature of the war on drugs.

The panel approved the official CRC logo, which features the words “equity” and “safety”, two tenets the CRC vows to uphold.

Commissioner Charles Barker stated that “black and brown individuals as well as their family and communities have been vilified through the government-created war on drugs”.

The CRC will meet again on Thursday, April 22nd, as the NJ marijuana marketplace continues to develop.
