Garden State closer to medical marijuana facilities

TRENTON, N.J. - The Garden State moves one step closer to opening medical marijuana facilities.

The New Jersey Health and Senior Services Department posted on its website Monday the forms that the alternative treatment centers will need to fill out to get permits to start doing business.
It's a bureaucratic development, but an important one.
Earlier this year, the state selected six nonprofit groups to grow and sell pot to qualifying patients.
 At least one of them said it has its locations lined up and is ready to start planting crops, but first needs final permission from the state.
The forms ask the organizations for background checks on employees and for documentation of local zoning approvals, among other things.
 The state could take 60 days to issue permits after getting completed forms.
