Today is a glorious day! The Jersey Shore is getting it’s very first recreational marijuana dispensary.
MPX NJ, located at 153 South New York Ave., in the city’s Orange Loop bar district, will transition from being solely a medical facility to offering adult-use cannabis as well. It’s no coincidence that the shop chose April 20th as the launch day.
Last year, Atlantic City established a 24 block area called the “Green Zone” where marijuana businesses can legally operate. According to PhillyVoice.com, this part of the city’s redevelopment plan “aims to spur tourism and revive the economy of Atlantic City’s struggling business district.”
More rec facilities are in the works for America’s Playground. A multi-floor cannabis lounge called High Rollers Dispensary is set to open soon at the Claridge Hotel. And the former supermarket space at 3004 Atlantic Ave is under construction now to become a lounge and dispensary.
Atlantic City just got a whole lot cooler, man.
