Her workplace, a former chain electronics store, used to be the place people came to buy televisions and DVD players. But last year, nearly 2,700 patients with glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, terminal cancer, epilepsy and many other conditions came here for relief in the form of medical marijuana.

“When I heard the industry was coming to New Jersey, it’s something I wanted to be a part of,” said Drum, production manager for Garden State Dispensary. “A whole new medical field was coming here. You feel like there’s something moral about it, being able to help introduce people to something that can help them.”I still feel like we’re definitely at the initial stages of the industry as a whole.”Drum was one of many employees working Thursday at Garden State Dispensary, which opened in November 2013. The employees were selling medical marijuana strains such as Sour Diesel and Death Star. They were cultivating clones from mother plants.
