CRANBURY - New Jersey’s fifth medical marijuana dispensary is now open for business.
Breakwater Treatment and Wellness opened its doors to patients Thursday in Cranbury. The 21,000-square-foot dispensary features consultation rooms, a nautical-themed retail space and chalkboards that list marijuana strains by name.
“[Patients] can come to Breakwater and receive quality, affordable medicine on a consistent basis,” says operations manager Andrew Zaleski. “Everything is documented and everything is checked by us even before [patients] come in here when they schedule an appointment."
Employees at Breakwater say that their mission is to sell the least expensive and best quality cannabis to registered patients. The facility offers four different strains.
Many patients say that the dispensary is a welcome addition to Cranbury.
“I have glaucoma,” says patient Francine Brescia. “My eye pressure has never been the same since I’ve been on it…I’m getting great results from my eye doctor, so I think it’s a wonderful thing that New Jersey is doing this.”
The dispensary intends to grow enough marijuana to serve as many as 3,000 patients.
