WOODBRIDGE - The state's third medical marijuana dispensary, and the first medical marijuana store in Central Jersey, will open soon in Woodbridge.

The Compassionate Care Centers of America Foundation will open a new location along Route 1 north. It is currently under construction.

The dispensary will occupy the old 6th Avenue Electronics store.

A store is already operating in Montclair and another is expected to open this fall in Egg Harbor Township.

Medical marijuana became legal in New Jersey three years ago.
