N.J.’s 19th legal weed store launches in Montclair

EDITOR’S NOTE: ...

EDITOR’S NOTE: NJ Cannabis Insider is hosting a day-long conference and networking event Sept. 15 at the Crowne Plaza Princeton, featuring many of the state’s leading power players. Tickets are limited.

A steady stream of customers entered the Ascend Montclair dispensary on Saturday during its inaugural weekend offering adult recreational weed.

Among those who came to check things out was Michele DeZao, 60, of Rockaway, who was on her second visit to the dispensary since getting her medical marijuana card two months ago.

The recovering cancer patient on disability immediately noticed the bigger crowds on Saturday but appreciated how she was still treated as a priority with the medical patients-only check out line.

The hours of 8 a.m to 10 a.m. are reserved for medical patients only, with adult weed starting at 10 a.m., seven days a week at Ascend Montclair.

“I don’t have a problem with it,” said DeZao as she paid for vapes and edibles, which she said helps alleviate her stomach pains. “People are buying it (adult recreational weed) anyway so why not make it legal?”

The dispensary at 395 Bloomfield Avenue officially opened for adult weed sales at 10 a.m. Friday to become the 19th location in New Jersey to offer it after weeks of negotiations with the township.

“We are grateful for the support of the Montclair community and cannot wait to share the Ascend experience with the people of Montclair and the surrounding towns,” said Caitlin Fleishman, Director of Public Affairs and Communications for Ascend Wellness, the multi-state operator owner of the dispensary.

The Montclair Township Governing Body voted 5-1 last Tuesday to accept a pre-negotiated settlement agreement with Ascend to begin adult weed sales.

Township Counselor-At-Large Peter Yacobellis said part of the settlement agreement included a “voluntary contribution” to various organizations by Ascend Montclair, using adult weed revenue.

“I want to laud Ascend for their incredible generosity to the citizens of Montclair and in particular for their contributions to the Montclair Neighborhood Development Corporation and Montclair Community Pre-K (program),” Yacobellis said in an email. “When I think about the harm that legacy marijuana laws have caused to low income communities and in particular, communities of color, I want to make sure that we do everything we can to ensure those communities are the ones benefiting from revenues generated by this new marketplace.”

The company’s other New Jersey store in Rochelle Park debuted adult recreational weed sales on April 21 with the statewide launch, and has quickly emerged as one of its top performing stores for adult weed in the U.S., according to Ascend’s owner and co-founder.

Ascend Fort Lee began selling medical marijuana on Aug. 12 and plans to expand to adult weed in the fall.

At Ascend Montclair, “it was a lot of organic traffic flow and a big outpouring of support,” Fleishman said late Saturday.

Columbus Day is back on the Rockaway Township school calendar

ROCKAWAY TOWNSHIP — School board officials voted to reinstate Columbus Day on the school calendar after Italian-American activists protested its removal.

Dozens of residents, activists and parents attended Wednesday night's school board meeting to urge the board to replace Indigenous Peoples' Day with Columbus Day.

Columbus Day was returned to the calendar following a 5-2 vote.

"As an American. I'm telling you, we have to preserve [Columbus Day]. We shouldn't let the revisionists change our history because changing the history is a way to attack our country," said Andre' DiMino, communications director for the Italian American One Voice Coalition at Wednesday's meeting.

A motion to discuss Columbus Day was not on the agenda, but board member Aaron Tomasini asked school officials to consider a vote to change the day. School officials Rachel Brookes and Tanya Sheilds voted against the action.

"In the spirit of inclusion and celebration of all, and I say it again, of all, I make a motion to place Columbus Day on the 2022 and 2023 school calendar and thereafter as a second Monday in the month of October," Tomasini said.

Last December, the board voted to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples' Day. Board member Lisa Mezik said the decision to rename the day said there was confusion on what members were voting on. Mezik said it should have been clearly stated to members before the vote in December.

Help for immigrants:State launches one-time cash benefit aid for individuals ineligible for federal stimulus

"The calendar that I saw did not have that change highlighted. So that was not something that I realized I was voting on," said Mezik at a board meeting in September.

Last month, school officials considered reinstating Columbus Day. More than 20 residents and local Italian American activists attended the meeting and spoke in support of the motion. Board members were split on the decision to either reinstate Columbus Day or have both on one day, leading to the motion's failure to pass.

This isn't the first time a local school board has faced criticism from angry Italian Americans. In June, hundreds of riled Randolph residents and others enraged by the removal of Columbus Day urged their Board of Education to reverse its course and return to its original school calendar, complete with a day off marked for Columbus Day.

Matt Mustachio, treasurer of the Rockaway Township chapter of UNICO, also spoke in favor of reinstating Columbus Day on the school calendar.

"Twenty-two percent of the people in Rockaway Township are Italian American," Mustachio said. "I don't understand why you would take an Italian event, which is Columbus Day, off the calendars and the children who are Italian American don't know anything about their heritage."
