First Black-Owned & Women-Led Cannabis Dispensary To Open In East Orange, NJ

The Flower Garden Dispensary will be the first black-owned and women-led retail cannabis dispensary in the state of New Jersey. CEO & Founder, Dana Rone, along with partners and East Orange natives Dawn Middleton and Jose Rivera III, will operate a first-of-its-kind, state-of-the-art, four-story dispensary located in the heart of the city’s Arts & Cultural District.

“I’ve long dreamt of entering the growing cannabis industry and opening a business that will create new opportunities for our communities,” said Dana Rone. “We hope our inclusive and welcoming space will help change the historical negative narrative and experience of cannabis in our communities to one that is positive.”

In addition to the ground floor dispensary store, The Flower Garden Dispensary plans to create cannabis consumption spaces, including a recreational consumption lounge, an educational hub, an events area and a co-working space, where adult customers can safely consume cannabis products.

The Flower Garden Dispensary gained approval from the City of East Orange City Council to operate a Class 5, retail cannabis dispensary located at 381 Martin Luther King Blvd at the intersection of Main Street.
