New Jersey may not have adult use cannabis, but the ancillary and medical markets are growing like weeds.
To staff the budding industry, Stockton University will host a cannabis career fair and business expo on Sept. 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The vendor area, where cannabis businesses can advertise and sell their legal products, will be free and open to the public. Vendors interested in participating can register for $300 by phone through the Stockton University Office of Continuing Studies by Aug. 28. The OCS can be reached at (609) 652-4227.
Employers looking to staff their cannabis companies will have the opportunity to meet potential job candidates and to host speed interviews. Employer registration is $150.
The event is co-sponsored by the New Jersey Cannabusiness Association and will feature workshops and speakers, including New York Giants Super Bowl champion and medical cannabis company Community Greenhouse LLC Co-founder Amani Toomer; Sen. Troy Singleton, D-7th District; NJCBA President Scott Rudder; and executive director of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana in New Jersey Ken Wolski.
Workshops, which haven’t been announced yet, will be $25 to attend. Attendees can register through the NJCBA. College students with valid ID can attend for free.
