Hit the ‘like’ button: Facebook restores New Jersey dispensary page

TRENTON, N.J. — Facebook has restored the business page of one of three New Jersey medical marijuana dispensaries it shut down last week for violating the social media company’s policy against promoting the sale of drugs.

An official with Compassionate Sciences in Bellmawr said Monday that it got its Facebook page back over the weekend after removing photos of marijuana and prices.

Another dispensary, Breakwater Treatment and Wellness in Cranbury, created a new Facebook page.

A Facebook page was up for the third dispensary, Garden State in Woodbury, although it was unclear if it was a new page or the original that had been shut down. A spokesman for the business did not return a call seeking comment on Monday night.

Facebook did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.
