TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission will hold its first public meeting on Monday.

Gov. Phil Murphy announced the meeting Thursday in a statement. The commission must establish regulations for the new recreational marijuana marketplace that voters ratified in an overwhelming vote in November.

Murphy, a Democrat, said in February he thinks the market could be up and running in about six months. The meeting will bet at 2 p.m. Monday and take place virtually.

The public can view the meeting on the commission’s website, but it’s unclear whether the public will be able to comment or otherwise participate.
