While there are many ATCs in New Jersey, not all will have retail sales available on April 21st (or ever). The seven companies that were selected to permit retail sales to operate several dispensaries throughout the state, but many locations are still working with local officials to finalize retail marijuana laws or will remain solely for medical-use purchases. 

Note: At this time, the sales of adult-use marijuana are restricted to adults over the age of 21. Consumers can purchase up to one ounce of cannabis; or up to five grams of cannabis concentrate, or some combination thereof, not to exceed one ounce, or the equivalent, of usable cannabis as a cannabis-infused product in solid, liquid, or concentrate form. Consumers must provide a government-issued photo ID with their birthdate. There is a 6.25% state sales tax and municipalities can add additional sales tax.
