Medical Marijuana Grow Sites Picked in New Jersey

Medical Marijuana Grow Sites Picked in New Jersey

Posted by Marijuana Doctors on 03/22/2011 in Medical Marijuana Laws

With the official selection of treatment centers that can grow and sell medical marijuana, New Jersey comes one step closer to finally implementing the NJ medical marijuana law that was passed by New Jersey voters on January 11, 2010.

Yesterday, the state Department of Health and Senior Services announced the locations of 6 legal grow sites for medical marijuana patients in New Jersey, that NJ patients have been waiting 14 months for. Here are the locations:

North Jersey: Montclair and Secaucus

Central Jersey: Manalapan and New Brunswick

South Jersey: Bellmawr and either in Camden County OR Burlington

The chosen centers are as follows:

·       Breakwater Alternative Treatment Center Corp. in Manalapan

·       Compassionate Care Centers of America Foundation in New Brunswick

·       Compassionate Care Foundation Inc., in Bellmawr

·       Compassionate Sciences Inc., in Burlington or Camden County

·       Foundation Harmony in Secaucus

·       Greenleaf Compassionate Center in Montclair

The approved centers were chosen from 35 applications from 21 nonprofit entities. Each applicant had to show their plans for security and quality control, as well as secure financial backing and preliminary approvals from local zoning boards and town governments.

The centers are banned from providing home delivery services, and must also adhere to strict rules regarding the products they carry. The cannabis they sell cannot contain more than 10% of THC content, and they may only grow and sell up to three strains of marijuana.

Meanwhile, Sen. Nicholas Scutari, a co-sponsor of the New Jersey’s medical marijuana law, wants to overturn the Christie Administration rules. Scutari contends that the regulations don’t meet the intent of the NJ medical marijuana legislature and is attempting to get lawmakers to nullify the proposed regulations from Christie’s administration.
