The final medical marijuana dispensary licensed by New Jersey in 2018 can start growing cannabis, the state Health Department said Monday.
Justice Grown in Ewing received its permit to cultivate last week, the department said in a release. The brings the state total to 12.
While a dozen alternative treatment centers can now grow weed, only seven have permission to sell it. Two of the companies also have satellite dispensaries, for a total of nine storefronts.
The remaining five alternative treatment cetners, which received permission to grow weed earlier this year, include Verano in Readington, MPX NJ in Pleasantville, TerrAscend in Boonton Township and Columbia Care NJ in Vineland, in addition to Justice Grown. Each must still receive permits to dispense from the Health Department to allow them to serve patients.
