New Jersey’s Second Medicinal Marijuana ATC Opens In Egg Harbor

Per The Star Ledger:

"Days before the second medicinal marijuana shop opens in New Jersey, the dispensary’s owners held a building dedication ceremony yesterday in memory of an ardent patient advocate who helped get the law passed but died before she could become a customer.

"Diane Riportella’s family, friends and fellow advocates gathered at Compassionate Care Foundation, Inc. in Egg Harbor Township to pay tribute to her efforts that help persuade state lawmakers to legalize medical marijuana in 2010."

"Some 600 patients have elected to use the Egg Harbor facility as their dispensary, Thomas said. The Health Department has asked Compassionate Care to meet with patients in the order in which they signed up, he said, noting that some people have been waiting a year.

"About 130 patients have been served at Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair."
