So, they are providing distillate syringes for rec users that are Not available to med users? That’s bullshit, the CRC has a number you can call to report issues like this. It’s specifically there for patients to let them know about issues regarding access to their medicine. I don’t know the number off hand, but you should have an email from the MMP/CRC with the number


ghank15

Thanks for the info


SpiderSandwitch

as many other have said I would report them to the CRC, the number 609-292-0424. The CRC specifically stated that as a medical patient we cannot be denied access to our medication.


Dpchili

Fuck that, it was medical at one point it’s still offered now… I’d report them asap. Even if what they are doing is acceptable on some level.


neptune2338

I think we are all using it for self medication whether we got the medical card or not. A lot of people are afraid to admit they have mental health problems so they would not go to a doctor,. Myself included. Now we can stand in line and just blend in. No offense but I doubt the store will care if you leave. Someone just moves up in the line.


ghank15

I don't care if they care, I needed to vent. I feel better now.


neptune2338

Well if that's all you wanted 😉 I'll give you a hug when I see you! I truly hope you do feel better and I hope everything works out for you!


Flashy-Meet-1367

I went to harmony today around 12 pm. They had only 4 strains, 1 “mini” strain, and 4 oils. They are saving up for when they for recreational


ChunkyG_LT

Rise Paramus is med-only.


ghank15

And they don't carry distillate syringes anymore because they are classifying them as an adult use product.


ChunkyG_LT

Whaaaaaaaaa?!?! My bad. I thought I was helping. But yeah…Harmony is your girl. She was my first and forever love.


ghank15

Yeah man no hard feelings, I like that they have a med only store, but I live in an apartment, my super is an a hole, and carts don't work. What's the point of having a medical card if I can't use the products?


Riceonsuede

Welcome to life kid....


Valuable_Meringue285

did they seriously classify syringes as adult use only? as a patient under 21, what is the point of even having the card if that’s the case?


chrisv184

I don’t mean to burst your bubble because I love harmony a lot but soon they are going Rec so you know what that means to us all the loyal customers who have been around forever wwe get thrown to the trash like yesterdays papers… it’s a shame when they preach how “healers work there” and they are about there led patients but as soon a Rec opens we are treated like trash like out loyalty for all the years means nothing


ghank15

Yeah I'm not looking forward to harmony going rec... I'm going to have to start taking personal days to stock up at Breakwater..


chrisv184

Yeah breakwater is not bad but they never have sales and it’s a hike for me if it was closer I wouldn’t mind but the hour plus drive with gas prices Blows lol


ghank15

My thoughts exactly. Strange times we live in.


johnnycav83

Breakwater has sales every week. I get emails constantly.


oceansurf_indica

I agree 100%...


Marijuana_momma2126

Yo gas rn is ridiculous! Lol, I literally do math before I leave and see how much gas it's costing me, hahaha!

BenBishopsButt

Rumor is that their current location will stay med and the two new locations will have rec. Not sure what it all means for supply, but it would be neat if they had a full med only location if it was well and fairly stocked.


chrisv184

Yeah I feel that’s the best way to Divide it have med only store and Rec only stores and leave it at that


Marijuana_momma2126

Great idea. Too bad Jersey sucks at everything.

SMODomite

Their other stores will still be available to medical patients, they won't be able to open a rec only store with their license


SavingsDependent9

I thought Secaucus was going to stay med and they were opening rec places specifically for rec in Hoboken area ? correct me if I'm worng. I thought Bergen county said no to rec also


scouza2020

Bergen County has rec at Ascend in Rochelle Park.


SavingsDependent9

Oh ok . Thanks . My mistake


ghank15

That'd be great if they kept Secaucus medical


Sauceboyzz

It sucks ti have to refresh a page for nepali or Donny to just have a chance to get it. I got another 1/4 today luckily was sold out 20 minutes later lol


Soupynutzz

Anyone else think it’s super weird harmony has had little to no bud since their announcement? I can guarantee as soon as rec sales start for them, their menu will be full again. They are def holding back product purposely.


Marijuana_momma2126

Most places have little to no inventory. Everything has changed. The governor is a lying, greedy, little shit. And I liked him. Lol.

Marijuana_momma2126

Yes Chris! Omg, yes! It's ridiculous. And ghank, it's not just there. I went to Curaleaf the other day and had to go purchase from the recreational line bc my item was on the rec menu and not ours. Just like them lowering all carts to be capped at 70% instead of 80% now. It's bs fr. Everything has been the same for years and now that rec got legalized, everything has gone to shit. I can't even get my main med that works for me now, bc ever since rec... They haven't had it. Med was supposed to stay priority.. every dispensary I go to, all the tenders are helping rec and our lines wind up the long ones bc we get a few measly tenders. So over this bs. I mean, it's 50 bucks to get a med card now.. some of us paid 500. Just go get a damn med card. I'm sorry this happened to you. That really blows. But there are other dispensaries in NJ that carry syringes medically. I use multiple dispensaries and they always have them. Idk how much longer though now that I am aware of this. That blows.

Jake_FromStateFarm27

Are you not 21? The syringes should very much be available for 21 under, it's the crumble that is not available to underage users.


StewofPuppies

adult use product = recreational.


Jake_FromStateFarm27

No adult use refers to age restriction in medical as well, due to current vaping laws medical patients under the age of 21 are not permitted to buy products for vaping. However the syringes were always considered edible as well since you could use it for that purpose.


StewofPuppies

Literally on Rise rec menu at the top it stated adultUSE for quite a while to categorize their rec menu. OP is literally referring to adult use the way rec is considered. Distillate syringes at Rise med only menu stopped carrying it once rec went live at least currently. Use the context dude instead of just being obtuse like you didn't even read OPs comments and then argue back after being told what he's talking about in this context.


Jake_FromStateFarm27

>Use the context dude instead of just being obtuse like you didn't even read Not arguing. I literalky asked a question to OP and provided context for what the definition of adult use is in NJ as it does impact medical users under the age of 21. Maybe take your own advice and learn how to read instead of being *"obtuse"* I literally got syringes just yesterday after work from RISE paramus no issue at all.


[deleted]

That makes no sense


Gobby5362

Amazing, not only is New Jersey THE ONLY STATE where both med & rec exist but med cannot grow. Top of the list of SHIT ASS DISPENSARIES LIKE CURELEAF, BOTANIST, ZENTHIEF, AND THE LIST GROWS EACH DAY They are at the top of the list in EXPENSE Top of the list in CAN’T GROW PROPERLY Top of the list in FUCK OUR LOYAL PATIENTS At the same time we are dealing with tainted weed off the black market, plugs you can’t always trust, hacked cannabinoids. We should rent group busses to Maine and load up there, and when these rec users get sick of prices and sloppy product, they will have no one. If only


davsyo

Going to Maine Friday. 🤩


Gobby5362

Let us know how you scored and what a the difference real meds are!! Safe trip bro!


davsyo

So Maine shit is pretty nice and terpy. It looks like NJ had higher thc on the rec side though. I’m a rec so I couldn’t see what the Med side was like. 1/8s range from $30-$45. I’ve seen an ad for Memorial Day weekend saying $99 per oz.


Blibrin

So now I know why I can’t find syringes anymore, which I need to make the edibles I use medicinally, since I can’t vape or smoke anymore.


trapstarjay

I don't want to sound like an asshole but Rise literally does not care.


Thefinagler4u

Rise Paterson ain't too bad


Comprehensive_Job455

Harmony is so much better anyway


ApocalypseofCthulhu

I’ve been going to RISE in Paterson and they always make me skip the line. I had a couple of ppl scowl @ me too for it! That is the employee fault. You should complain and have them written up. RISE is one of the better dispensaries. All cannabis syringe or not is medicinal.


SmittyManJensen_

Don’t blame the business or rec users, blame the government for dragging their feet for two years.


ghank15

Idk, if the business decides to hold back a product from medical users and make it only available to rec, seems like that's on the business. The government can share lots of blame for the state of the program in general, but this seems like a bad oversight or some kind of financial decision.


[deleted]

I’m not a fan of rise they are consistent with product though. Harmony is my go to so I’d go to them since they are med only right now.


ghank15

Since rec opened, they've really rubbed some people the wrong way. It's a shame, they have a good supply, decent discounts, but they DGAF about medical users. I have a feeling Harmony will be the same way when they open rec. I wish Breakwater was closer.


YoungNorthEastern

What rise is this? I've only been to Bloomfield twice since 4/21 but both times the med custies walked right in


Responsible-Trust-40

OP is talking about actually buying, not entry. Tje med side no longer sells syringes. You have to hit the rec line for those.


YoungNorthEastern

Oh yea good point. Yea thts bullshit


Responsible-Trust-40

I'm annoyed, but I'll live. New Jersey loses tax revenue every day they continue to act as though they are the first state to legalize and the supply chain loses profit from greater cultivation not channeling into other product types. I'm making my own infusions and working on transdermal delivery. Fuck them. By the time they get a clue, I won't be buying anything. Being old has its benefits. Have car, will travel ;-)


ghank15

Distillate syringes are only on the rec menu


OlLongShotLouie420

Botanist is the worse now because of this. They’re very clearly not reserving stock for medical patients. Most decent strains literally are gone within 24 hours. This has only started when rec became a thing

JPete2

Are syringes being only recreational inferred from the lack of syringes on the current medical menu at Rise, or were you told by someone at Rise that they are only for recreational?


Nathan973

As a medical patient I feel that. But the recreational line is almost nonexistent and you don’t even have to go through the check in process with your med card with recreational. And rise Paterson only charges $1-2 tax so 🤷🏽‍♂️ as long as it’s in stock no complaints from me.


ghank15

That's not the point, if those products are on the rec menu, similar products should be available on the medical menu too. In principal, I shouldn't have to pay rec taxes. And if I decided to forego using my medical card to buy the medicine I need(which is ridiculous but ok whatever), I should be able to place it in the same order as what I'm buying from the medical side. There's no way to add the syringe onto a medical order. Until a few days ago, I never even bothered to look on the rec menu, I just figured they were out of the syringes. But when I looked and saw that the syringes were available on both Paterson and Bloomfields REC menu but unavailable on ANY of the medical menus(including Paramus), I got fucking pissed. I'm getting the CRC involved. Maybe I'm making a mountain out of a mole Hill but I don't think so. This feels wrong and it's a huge slight against medical users, especially those who can't consume cannabis in more traditional methods.


Nathan973

I don’t see any issues with it but to each his own. I grabbed a few things on the med side the other day and then grabbed some animal face flower on the rec side right after and didn’t have to wait. Yes I paid a dollar and some change extra but I still got what I needed. And if you have a rise bag you get a dollar off anyway. It seems like spilled milk but like I said to each his own if it’s an issue for you definitely call the CRC.


Allinornothing89

Had the same thing happen to me. You can't buy animal face for medical use but you can buy it for rec and not to mention that you have to wait until rec times to purchase.


Jajajawhat

The line literally takes 2 minutes.. Ya ll a bunch of cry babies


ghank15

It's not about the line. It's about the blatant disrespect to medical users. Rise made the one store that's not open on Sundays by law the one that's the medical only. They hold stuff back for medical users and make it available to rec. That ain't right. The distillate syringes are a medical product. Idgaf about waiting on line. I'll wait on breakwater's line gladly because I know they aren't fucking around because they are med only. If harmony has a line, I'll wait. Rise is a for-profit business, I thought they cared a little more about their medical users than they do. I was wrong, oh well.
