MONTCLAIR, N.J. (AP) — It’s no surprise that the town of Montclair is on the verge of being the first New Jersey community with a legal medical marijuana dispensary.

The famously liberal New York City suburb of 38,000 is sometimes called “the Upper West Side of New Jersey.” But it also has the feel of other well-heeled bohemian spots such as Boulder, Colo., and Berkeley, Calif., where medical marijuana has long been available.

People who live and work in Montclair have been very mellow about the prospect of a pot dispensary. It’s going to open in the middle of the main drag, next door to an abortion clinic and three doors from a smoke shop.

The five other nonprofit groups in New Jersey with permission to provide medical marijuana have struggled to find homes.
