Jersey City prosecutor Jake Hudnut, who played a critical role in the State Attorney General’s decision to adjourn marijuana related prosecutions until Sept. 4, addressed the issues of decriminalization and expungement to an audience of several hundred at CannaGather NJ’s monthly event July 31 at Zeppelin Hall Beer Garden in Jersey City.

“Two weeks ago, I fought the law, and the law said, ‘time out,'” Hudnut told the crowd.

Hudnut was a highlight of the presentations which also included Hope Wiseman, the youngest African-American female dispensary owner and Leslie Hoffman from the newly opened Harmony Dispensary in Secaucus relating advice and detailing issues with getting a business up and running in the cannabis industry.

“Education is the key to eliminate stigma in the cannabis industry,” Wiseman said.

Much of the talk among the attendees concerned the six new Alternative Treatment Center licenses and the application process. The state Department of Health released the application Aug. 1.
