NORML.ORG – New Jersey Medical Marijuana Law Finally To Be Implemented

Trenton, NJ: Governor Chris Christie announced at a press conference on July 19 he is now ready to reverse his suspension of the program and allow six state-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries to move ahead with their operations. After discussing the various potential conflicts between state and federal laws Christie told the AP, “I have instructed the Commissioner of Health to move forward as expeditiously as possible to implement the [program].” “We welcome Governor Christie’s new commitment to getting the medical marijuana program up and running,” said New Jersey NORML spokesperson Chris Goldstein. “This wait has been long and painful for patients. If he is sincere, then the next step is for the Christie administration to finalize some workable regulations.” Medical marijuana advocates have been arguing for the need to revise the medical marijuana regulations previously issued by the administration. “The physician registry is unnecessary and will disqualify numerous patients. Plus the cap on THC level is arbitrary and home delivery is not being permitted. These are all roadblocks to patient access that we hope the Christie Administration will reconsider,” according to Ken Wolski, a registered nurse and executive director of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey (CMMNJ).
