New Jersey's second medical marijuana dispensary opens

New Jersey's second medical marijuana dispensary is opening in the southern part of the state.

With Monday's launch, Compassionate Care Foundation in Egg Harbor Township joins a clinic in Montclair that opened its doors last December. 

Compassionate Care CEO Bill Thomas tells The Press of Atlantic City ( ) 600 patients have registered with the clinic and over 200 appointments are booked so far.

More than 1,300 patients and more than 240 doctors have enrolled in the program since New Jersey legalized medical marijuana in 2010. But the program has been slow in growing and the Montclair facility has had problems with an insufficient supply.
