TRENTON — The state Health Department announced Monday a new medical marijuana dispensary will open to the public next month.
Compassionate Science Alternative Treatment Center, located in Bellmawr, is the second dispensary to open in south Jersey, and the last in that region unless state health officials agree more are needed to meet the demand.
The program has 5,500 registered patients and caregivers, who are permitted to buy cannabis from a dispensary on behalf of patients who are unable to make the trip.
The health department in March 2011 selected non-profits to open two dispensaries each in north, central and south Jersey, but nearly all of them have struggled to win local support and and state approvals...continue 4th N.J. medical marijuana dispensary will open in October here.
