N.J. cannabis industry abuzz with first big in-person networking event July 29

By NJ Cannabis Insider staff | Updated Jun 25, 2021; Posted Jun 24, 2021

Cannabis delivery from state-licensed operators did not take off last year as anticipated after the pandemic forced the overall economy to pivot to on-demand products. Meanwhile, last week the New Jersey Attorney General Office’s moved to ban delivery companies that started “gifting” cannabis soon after the plant was legalized for adult consumers earlier this year.

At the same time, other states use the microlicenses and delivery mechanisms as primary jumping points for making a more equitable market — both factors that can serve as changemakers in the budding, multi-billion dollar industry.

This topic will be explored July 29 during NJ Cannabis Insider Live’s first in-person business mixer since the pandemic shutdown more than 15 months ago. The meetup takes place at the Asbury Hotel in Asbury Park from 6 to 10 p.m. Make sure to sign up early. Unlike our virtual events, capacity is limited to 150 individuals. (Purchase tickets here.)

The four-hour session will include the panel, “Delivery, equity and microlicensing,” featuring:

  • Precious Osagie Erese is Chief Operations Officer of CBD delivery company Roll Up Life
  • Ellie Siegel, CEO of cannabis consulting firm Longview Strategic
  • Bob Anderson, an attorney at the firm Lindabury, McCormick, Estabrook & Cooper
  • Sydney Snow, is senior manager of Government and Community Affairs at Eaze Technologies

The rest of the event will be dedicated to professionals networking, exchanging ideas, advice and brainstorming on some of the most pressing questions surrounding the state of the industry.

Sponsors and partners include:

  • Hance Construction was selected to build one of the first cannabis grow facilities in New Jersey, and has since worked on other medical cannabis projects, offering consulting and site-location services.
