Opening of first medical marijuana provider in NJ - FOX 13 News

NJ's first medical marijuana provider opens

Posted: Updated:

The first medical marijuana provider in New Jersey opened its doors Thursday. 

Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair says it is serving only 20 clients per day at first.

And they can get their medicine only by appointment.

Staff have been calling patients in the order the state issued their identification cards.

State officials have registered 338 patients, and another 61 applications are under review.

Patients are limited to no more than two ounces of marijuana per month. But Greenleaf initially plans to sell no more than a half-ounce to each person, so the supply can stretch to every registered patient.

In October, Greenleaf became the first medical marijuana provider licensed in New Jersey nearly three years after passage of a law to allow medicinal cannabis in the state.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
