The possible legalization of marijuana for recreational use in New Jersey is one of the biggest issues Gov.-elect Phil Murphy plans to pursue after he takes office on Jan. 16, 2018.

Questions swirl around it. When could it be legal? How would one get into growing and selling marijuana? Where would government revenues go?

"We want to get this ball rolling. This is a 2018 priority," Murphy said in a recent television interview about marijuana legalization.

One week after Murphy takes the oath of office, The MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce will start assisting businesses looking to capitalize with a breakfast forum called, "The Business Of: Cannabis."

The chamber will host no speakers or presenters, yet, but the forum is set at Forsgate Country Club in Monroe on Jan. 23, from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m.

The chamber said its acting to help businesses get into the industry because of Murphy's election, his "full steam ahead" pledge to legalize marijuana and all the expected benefits, including hundreds of millions in sales and tax revenues.

The chamber plans to present talks on the following topic: setting up your business, financial and legal requirements, securing cannabis cultivation and dispensary licenses, employment law issues, liability and risk issues and working with state and local officials to secure locations.
