New Jersey is opening up a second medical marijuana dispensary which should be ready to open in September of 2013. It will serve 1,000 patients that have already registered that are terminally ill or have chronic severe pain. The Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair was the only dispensary in New Jersey which got to be overwhelming from demands all across the state. When it opens physicians will determine how much a patient will need and give written instructions to be presented to an alternative treatment center. They will only get up to two ounces for a 30 day period and patients will be protected from arrest, prosecution, property forfeiture and other criminal penalties.
