Montclair Approves Medical Marijuana Dispensary

A New Jersey medical marijuana dispensary has approval to open in Montclair but is still awaiting the final go-ahead from the state.
  

Greenleaf Compassion Center announced Tuesday that it had received zoning approval about two weeks ago for a storefront in the northern New Jersey town.
  

It is the second dispensary that has made public a location that has local government approval. Last month, the zoning board in Maple Shade rejected a zoning approval for a dispensary.
  

In March, the state approved six nonprofit organizations to operate the clinics to sell marijuana to patients with certain medical conditions such as glaucoma and terminal cancer.
  

The final permits have not been issued. The state has said it intends for the clinics to open early in 2012.
