N.J. medical marijuana outlets grow slowly

    Eight months after being selected by the state, only two of six groups licensed to sell medical marijuana have found firm locations.

    The Associated Press reports that local zoning approval has presented roadblocks for the groups.

    One of the alternative treatment centers has launched a website in hopes of helping educate the public about cannabis and how it can be used medically. Officials there hope it will make a location an easier sell.

    A group that doesn’t have a license to grow pot and sell it to patients is trying to get approval for a location in Camden in hopes that it could lease the space to one of the licensed organizations.
