NJ zoning boards reject medical marijuana vendors
TRENTON, N.J. - November 25, 2011 (WPVI) -- The groups approved to sell medical marijuana in New Jersey are finding that one of their biggest challenges is getting local approvals for places to do business.
Eight months after being selected by the state, only two of the six nonprofit groups have firm sites.
Others have run into stiff local opposition.
One of the alternative treatment centers has launched a website in hopes of helping educate the public about cannabis and how it can be used medically. Officials there hope it will make a location an easier sell.
A group that doesn't have a license to grow pot and sell it to patients is trying to get approval for a location in Camden in hopes that it could lease the space to one of the licensed organizations.
