A Montclair, New Jersey, medical marijuana facility was granted Health Department permission to begin growing its first crop, more than two years after former governor Jon Corzine signed a bill authorizing it on his last day in office.
They aren’t going to plant, however. Because there are permits needed and patient and physician registries that need to be compiled–and there is a lot of doubt that all this will come together in time to distribute the pot, which will be ready four months from seeding. There is no secondary market for the harvest. Terminal, pain-ravaged cancer patients, among others, await.
