The Cannabis Regulatory Commission previously announced that cannabis-infused cookies, brownies, gummies or any products that resemble food will not be permitted for sale.

The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (CRC) may reconsider a ban on the sale of edibles in the state’s adult-use market, according to New Jersey 101.5.

Regulators’ interim regulations for the state’s forthcoming adult-use cannabis market include a rule that prohibits dispensaries from selling cannabis-infused cookies, brownies, gummies or any products that resemble food.

However, at its last meeting, the CRC invited input from invited guests and the public about how to handle these products, New Jersey 101.5 reported, and some provided feedback indicating that regulators should reconsider the ban.

“Any form of edibles should be permitted as long as the regulatory procedures are followed,” Ken Wolski, executive director of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana, told the commission, according to New Jersey 101.5. “There should be no arbitrary exclusions placed on cannabis products.”

The CRC’s interim rules could be changed at any time, although regulators must adopt permanent rules for New Jersey’s adult-use cannabis industry by next August, the news outlet reported.
