New Jersey’s recreational marijuana market is now voter-approved and in effect under legislation signed last month by Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy.
Only those 21 and older can legally possess and use the drug. But there are a lot of ins and outs to think about; see what you can and can't do right here.

A Toms River-based company that bills itself as a "new and unique delivery service" says it will legally deliver cannabis treats to your door -- no matter which county you live in.

Orders can't be shipped, but Slumped Kitchen offers New Jerseyeans the privilege of having delectable "TREEats" hand delivered right to their doors.
If you think the price is steep, you aren't wrong. Essentially, Slumped Kitchen offers an "optional gift" of a half-ounce of weed delivered with its treats for a total of about $250.
