Waiting game for marijuana dispensary – Philly.com

South Jersey’s second medical-marijuana dispensary, expected to open in a renovated 18,000-square-foot building in Bellmawr, Camden County, received its final construction approvals from the borough in late December.
But the Compassionate Sciences Alternative Treatment Center still needs the green light from the state Department of Health before it can begin growing marijuana on the premises.
The background check of the dispensary’s principals and funding sources – which began in February 2013 – is continuing and is expected to be completed by the end of June, according to the department. After that, additional state inspections of the cultivation area and testing of the cannabis that is harvested could push the opening back to the fall or later.
