Tucked in a small commercial mall in an industrial area of Secaucus, New Jersey, across the Hudson River from Manhattan, sits Harmony Dispensary. Behind its unassuming storefront, Harmony prides itself as having an especially high standard among the Garden State’s medical marijuana cannabis outlets. While dispensary customers don’t get to see it, all of the cannabis for sale at Harmony is grown on the premises, in a unique and state-of-the-art hydroponic operation.
There’s new kind of Girl Scout cookies for sale in town -- though you’re going to need a prescription to get them. “Girl Scout Cookies” is actually the name of a strain of marijuana sold at the Harmony Dispensary, a medical marijuana facility at 600 Meadowlands Pkwy in Secaucus.
Harmony officially opened for business on June 18. It’s the first such operation in Hudson County, and the sixth Alternative Treatment Center in New Jersey.
New Jersey's newest medical marijuana dispensary opened Wednesday, the first facility added as part of the governor's massive medical marijuana expansion plan.
Located in Bellmawr, the dispensary -- formerly known as Compassionate Sciences -- opened a satellite location across the street from the existing location, which will become the dispensary's cultivation facility. Compassionate Sciences will now be called Curaleaf, named after the company that bought it less than a year ago.
The Harmony Foundation, a medical marijuana facility on Meadowlands Parkway in Secaucus, recently began harvesting its strains -- a crucial step before opening sometime this spring, according to Harmony Foundation spokeswoman Leslie Hoffman. Last July, the state issued Harmony a permit to begin growing its products.
The facility is a dispensary, meaning patients can pick up their prescriptions there.
