NJ Moves Toward Permits for Medical Pot Facilities

New Jersey is moving closer to letting medical marijuana facilities open.

The state Health and Senior Services Department last week published the forms that the alternative treatment centers will need to fill out to get permits to start doing business. The centers were told about the forms Monday.

It’s a bureaucratic development, but an important one. Earlier this year, the state selected six nonprofit groups to grow and sell pot to qualifying patients.

At least one of them says it has its locations lined up and is ready to start planting crops, but first needs final permission from the state.

The forms ask the organizations for background checks on employees and for documentation of local zoning approvals, among other things.
