For nearly two years, a clean white warehouse stood empty in the middle of a bustling industrial park where nitrogen canisters and sheet metal were being produced. Then in June, Compassionate Sciences announced it had obtained the approvals it needed to begin growing thousands of marijuana plants inside the building in Bellmawr, a Camden County borough of 12,000 less than 10 miles from Philadelphia. Now, just in time for autumn, the first harvest of the sweet-smelling crop is being processed while the second is expected to be ready in three weeks.

When John DeAngelis and his nine siblings were growing up on a Bellmawr farm, helping out in the fields was just what you did. So was fighting for your country. John, Lewis, Anthony, Peter, Vincent, and David DeAngelis all served in the U.S. Army during World War II. After the war, all six brothers came home to South Jersey, got married, and - like their brother Lawrence and sisters Rosie, Annie, and Virginia - went on to live estimable lives. For instance, Vincent, Anthony, Lawrence, and David became partners in Oaklyn Gulf, a service station the family still owns and operates as an auto repair business.

Rain and ice caused a pileup of a dozen vehicles Sunday that damaged a fire engine on a New Jersey Turnpike overpass Sunday. The trouble began when firefighters and an EMS crew responded to a one-car accident on Route 42 in Bellmawr, Fire Chief Jim Burleigh said. The responders blocked the road with a fire engine to protect workers at the scene, Burleigh said. As the EMS crew worked to treat the driver involved in the accident, another car slid on the ice and hit the fire engine.

A second medical marijuana dispensary is expected to open in South Jersey next month, now that the state Department of Health has issued a permit to Compassionate Sciences Inc. allowing it to begin operations at a Bellmawr site. "We anticipate opening the first week of October, once we get our product harvested and lab-tested by the state and approved for distribution," Compassionate Sciences spokesman Andrei Bogolubov said Monday after the nonprofit received the approval. The company is leasing an 18,000-square-foot former T-shirt factory in an industrial park in the Camden County community, not far from the Atlantic City Expressway.

It's a sunny morning in Bellmawr, but a thunderous boom pierces the air. Then another, and another. The bangs echo for blocks. At nearby businesses, the earth shakes. Photos rattle on walls, startling sleepy residents, but the skies remain clear, because, although it sounds like a storm, Mother Nature has nothing to do with it. The small town, located where Route 42 and I-295 and other thoroughfares converge, is in the midst of construction that has sent residents complaining to their neighbors, their mayor, the New Jersey Department of Transportation - and some to lawyers.

Two years after angry residents helped scuttle Compassionate Sciences' plan to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Maple Shade, the nonprofit has found a new location in the area — an industrial park in Bellmawr. The Camden County location, just off the New Jersey Turnpike, was approved by the township's zoning board, and currently is undergoing renovation, according to dispensary spokesman Andrei Bogolubov. The nonprofit expects to begin growing cannabis in a nearby warehouse this fall and hopes to open for business early next year, he said.
