TRENTON - Medical marijuana has taken a step forward in New Jersey as the state Department of Health approved licenses for six centers across the state to distribute the drug.

The state Health Department announced the list of six new nonprofit groups yesterday that are getting licenses to open alternative treatment centers. The six winners were picked from among applications from 21 groups.

The centers will be located in Manalapan, New Brunswick, Bellmawr, Montclair, Secaucus and a yet-to-be-named location in Burlington or Camden County.

The state's medical marijuana program was passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Chris Christie last year.
