LoFaro & Reiser Partner and Chair of the firm’s Cannabis Law Practice, Eric Reiser, wrote an article discussing New Jersey’s hemp licensing process, which was featured today in NJ Cannabis Insider’s weekly publication.

Hemp entrepreneurs are primed to step into this vacuum. Here’s a link to the article for subscribers: https://njcannabisinsider.nj.com/issues/102/index.html
