WOODBRIDGE - New Jersey's third marijuana dispensary should begin treating patients in Woodbridge by the end of this year.

The Garden State Dispensary is now accepting applications from new patients.

The medical marijuana program has been slowly rolled out, with only 1,500 patients and caregivers registered so far.

Patients can only be enrolled at one facility at a time, but can choose between this new center in Woodbridge, the Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair and the Compassionate Care Foundation of Egg Harbor.
