The Greenleaf Compassion Center has been approved to dispense medical marijuana in Montclair, New Jersey, making it the first legal medical marijuana distribution site in the state.
The application process took over a year and a half, and cost the collective owners over $150,000. Now that they have been officially approved, the collective can start dispensing marijuana as soon as they have it in stock. Marijuana will not be grown on the premises, but once the collective has grown enough marijuana they will begin dispensing it to patients.
According to the collective’s owners, Greenleaf will carry three varieties of medical marijuana– weak, medium, and strong. It is unclear which strains or types of marijuana they will distribute. Regardless of the strains, none are legally allowed to exceed 10% THC level, as is outlined in New Jersey’s medical marijuana law.
