NJ to hold hearing on medical marijuana rules

New Jersey’s Health Department on Monday will finally hold a hearing on proposed rules for how the state will regulate medical marijuana.

Lawmakers passed a law more than a year ago to allow pot for patients with certain medical conditions, but exactly how it’s done has been bogged down in the rule-making process.

Patients and their advocates say the rules are burdensome. They’re concerned the law limits the drug’s potency, something that none of the 13 other states that allow medical marijuana have done.

While the regulatory process is creeping forward, lawmakers are considering whether to rewrite the rules. Both chambers of the Legislature have declared that the proposed regulations don’t follow the legislative intent of the law.
