Can I get a job in the cannabis industry if I have a cannabis related felony?

Yes! The New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance, and Marketplace Modernization Act, or NJCREAMMA, prohibits employers from taking past cannabis-related offenses into account when making decisions about your employment. That includes any cannabis-related arrest, charge, adjudication, or conviction. In fact businesses that commit to hiring employees with past cannabis convictions receive certains priotizations from the NJ Cannabis Regulatory Commission; so having a past cannabis conviction can actually give you a leg up.
