Update: Compassionate Care Foundation has opened it’s doors officially. They have abided by all of the government and building inspector regulations. Compassionate Care Foundation CEO Bill Thomas says they will need at least 1,000 patients a month to break even. There are 600 patients already registered and 200 appointments set for new ones. The Compassionate Care Foundation said they have over 1,000 ounces on hand and plan to harvest 300 to 400 more ounces next week.
The facility was recently able to expand its production capacity, thanks to a $350,000 loan from the New Jersey Economic Development Agency. As a result, the center expects to harvest around 1,000 ounces of cannabis every two weeks.
The Compassionate Care Foundation will be New Jersey’s second operating medical marijuana dispensary. On October 28, The Compassionate Care Foundation will open its doors to the already 650 that have registered with the state. CCF says they already have 200 appointments scheduled.
Organizers there say they hope to eventually serve 20,000 with qualifying conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and terminal cancer.
The Press of Atlantic City reports that Compassionate Care Foundation will open in Egg Harbor Township. It received its final permit this month.
