New Jersey expands its medical marijuana program

New Jersey expands its medical marijuana program

The House Health and Welfare committee is expected to hear legislation today that would allow medical marijuana to be used as a legal treatment for persons with autism.

While cigarette smoking has always been on the decline, marijuana use is on the rise and, disproportionately, marijuana users also smoke cigarettes, the researcher said.

New Jersey has about 18,000 people in its medical marijuana program, a fraction of the more than 200,000 patients using a similar program in MI, according to the governor.

Act 16, the law that legalized medical marijuana in Pennsylvania, does not determine what dispensaries may charge for the medicine.

The Murphy administration will also license more companies to grow, cultivate and sell medicinal marijuana. For investing into the current businesses and allowing them to expand they need those investments.




The patient fee will also be reduced from $200 to $100, with a $20 rate for veterans and seniors. The registry has artificially restricted access to the system by forcing patients to seek out another physician if their family doctor declined to get listed with the state system.

Lisa Scott, a founding member of the DC Cannabis Business Association says D.C. government "is not doing enough to fix the records of thousands of its citizens who were caught up in the failed war on drugs".

The list "served no legitimate goal other than to put a mark on doctors and advance and amplify some of the stigma associated with this", Murphy said Tuesday. "We believe that safe and equal access to medical cannabidiol for all patients in Iowa should be the highest priority". Considering the fact that 2018 started off with Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinding the other piece of protection, known as the Cole Memo, seeing this funding bill stand between Sessions and his intentions to enforce federal marijuana law shows that Congress knows they shouldn't interfere. The work should be done within two months and then he'd be ready to ramp up cannabis production, he added. The program was previously limited to people with epilepsy, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder, Crohn's disease, cancer and other "debilitating medical conditions".

"We're putting that on the back burner for now", David Gwyther, president of the cannabis technology company American Green, told The Associated Press on Tuesday. While the chances of seeing more progressive legislation, or a rescheduling of cannabis in the Controlled Substances Act, may still be far off, at least Congress recognizes that states deserve the right to end prohibition within their borders as they see fit.
