Raekwon & Hashtoria to open New Jersey Cannabis Lounge!

Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon is working to open an adult-use cannabis lounge in Newark, New Jersey!

Raekwon is part owner in Hashtoria, the company planning to rehab a historical site at 799-805 Broad Street. The building, in Newark's Four Corners Historic District, dates back to 1839, and was the former home of engineering firm A.R. Meeker & Co and Stoutenburgh & Co Newark Clothiers.

The Newark Hashtoria lounge will expand the modernized brick facade to give the building a more unified appearance. Rachael Grochowski, principal of RHG Architecture and Design, added there would be "community art in the window that would be changeable."

New Jersey just recently announced cannabis consumption lounges would be allowed in the state. The application has been unanimously approved by the Landmarks Commission.

Hashtoria has locations in Oregon (Astoria, Gladstone, Springfield) and the New Jersey location is set to open its doors in March!
