In an article covering the current state of New Jersey's Marijuana Treatment Center program, it mentions that the still unopened Bellmawr facility has not been licensed after almost 1 1/2 years, even while construction is almost complete.
The article is credited to the Courier-Post, but the link presented here is from its sister newspaper, The Daily Journal
Excerpt below is specific to Bellmawr, but read the entire article to get the full picture on medical marijuana in New Jersey:
The owners of another facility, Compassionate Sciences, are still trying to get permission to open their center in Camden County. Nearly a year and a half after starting its review, the state Department of Health has yet to issue a permit to the nonprofit that wants to open a medical marijuana dispensary and growing facility in Bellmawr.
The facility is nearly built, and the state still is conducting background investigations.
At full capacity, Compassionate Sciences could serve up to 3,000 patients, according to Andrei Bogolubov, the nonprofit’s spokesman.
