N.J. Assembly To Consider Resolution To Force Change Of Medical Marijuana Rules


New Member
TRENTON – Proponents of a new law giving chronically ill patients access to medical marijuana say New Jersey's rules are too strict to comply with the intent of the law.

Resolutions being considered today in the Senate and Assembly would force the Republican administration of Gov. Chris Christie to rewrite the rules before they take effect in January.

New Jersey is the 14th state to allow medical marijuana.

The state's proposed regulations for dispensing the drug were released last month. Sen. Nick Scutari sponsored the medical marijuana bill. He says he hopes the administration will compromise with the advocates.

Christie has said he would not have signed the law in its current form.
