US (NJ): State gives OK to grow medical marijuana in Secaucus

The Meadowlands already set to be the home of the state's largest shopping and entertainment complex will also be the site of the state's largest dispensary of medical marijuana.

Once it opens for business, the dispensary plans to serve up to 4,000 patients a month with a variety of strains of cannabis.

The Christie administration recently issued a permit to grow medical marijuana to Harmony Foundation and will consider issuing a permit to dispense marijuana after the crop is tested later this year.  

The nonprofit foundation will operate the 10,000-square-foot facility on Meadowlands Parkway in Secaucus.

"After two years of designing and constructing this state-of-the-art facility, we are excited to finally put it into action," said Shaya Brodchandel, Harmony's president and CEO. The strains selected "are well suited for New Jersey medical patients' conditions and to our unique growing system," he said.
