Last Friday, I was invited to take a tour of Curaleaf New Jersey, one of the six authorized medical marijuana dispensaries in the state.  While there, I met with George Schidlovsky, President of Curaleaf New Jersey, and Bridgette Fonseca, Director of Dispensary Operations. We had a very interesting discussion about challenges and opportunities in running a dispensary.

On October 24, I will be moderating a panel discussion at the NJ Cannabis Summit with George, Bridgette, and Dr. Chanda Macias, the Owner and General Manager of the National Holistic Healing Center Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Washington D.C.  We will be talking about their experiences in running a medical marijuana dispensary, including compliance, quality control, customer interaction, physician education initiatives, and community outreach, to name a few topics.

The summit will take place at Forsgate County Club in Monroe, and the panel is scheduled for 3:45pm. You can see the entire agenda and register here.

If my visit with George and Bridgette is any indication, this is going to be an informative and fascinating conversation.  Please come join us on October 24!
