BILL ADVANCES CHALLENGING MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAW

120px-Seal_of_New_Jersey_svgA measure challenging the Christie Administration’s proposed rules for implementing the state’s medical marijuana law was approved by committees in the Senate and Assembly, setting it up for a vote by the full Legislature.

The bill is the first step in a legislative process that would invalidate the regulations as proposed and, ultimately, require the administration rewrite them to bring them in line with the Legislature’s intent in creating the ‘New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act.’

The measure seeks to address areas of the proposed Department of Health and Senior Services regulations that are inconsistent with the intent of the law and, in practice, would severely restrict or entirely prohibit access to medical marijuana by patients suffering with debilitating medical conditions.
