Third N.J. Medical Marijuana Dispensary Set to Open In November

A third operation now has permission to grow and sell medical marijuana in New Jersey. The Compassionate Care Centers of America Foundation is setting up shop in Woodbridge Township, Middlesex County.

The newly approved alternative treatment center is scheduled to open in November but there are mixed opinions about whether the blessing from the Department of Health will actually give patients true access to the medicine.

“Now, three sites have permits, but nobody’s open and nobody’s serving patients,” said Ken Wolski, head of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey.

The state’s first dispensary, located in North Jersey, is shut down temporarily to improve its product. Hundreds of patients are registered at that site and waiting to get an appointment.

The second site — set for Egg Harbor — is supposed to open in September.
