ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

New Jersey Cannabis Trade Association (NJCTA) is the only association comprised entirely of licensed cannabis operators, representing 11 of the Alternative Treatment Centers (ATCs) in New Jersey’s Medicinal Marijuana Program, with six of our members among those that opened New Jersey’s recreational cannabis market on Day One, 2022. Our mission is to create a legal cannabis marketplace that works for everyone by fostering an industry that is not only safe, accessible, and affordable, but also equitable and just. Formed amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and, given the gravity of the situation facing New Jersey’s growing medical marijuana patient population, NJCTA was created to provide a unified and streamlined voice for licensed cannabis operators in the State of New Jersey in interactions with the New Jersey Department of Health (DOH).
