In New Jersey, physicians determine how much marijuana a patient needs and give written instructions to be presented to an alternative treatment center. The maximum amount for a 30-day period is two ounces. Approved Conditions include Seizure disorder, including epilepsy, intractable skeletal muscular spasticity, glaucoma; severe or chronic pain, severe nausea or vomiting, cachexia, or wasting syndrome resulting from HIV/AIDS or cancer; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, terminal cancer, muscular dystrophy, or inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn’s disease; terminal illness.
It also allows edible forms of marijuana only for qualifying minors, who must receive approval from a pediatrician and a psychiatrist. As of Apr. 23, 2014, there were Alternative Treatment Centers with permits to operate in all three regions of the state as designated by the medical marijuana program: north, central, and south.
Marijuana legalization was definitely on the minds of New Jersey’s lawmakers as they began their 2018 session. Sen. Nicholas Scutari and Asm. Reed Gusciora, who have been leaders on this issue, have reintroduced SB 830 / AB 1348, which would tax and regulate marijuana for adults 21 and over. In addition, Asm. Gusciora has introduced A 3581, which unlike Sen. Scutari’s bill would allow home cultivation, but would put a low cap on the number of grower/processors licensed in the state.
Gov. Phil Murphy campaigned on a promise to legalize marijuana, emphasizing the need to address the harms caused by prohibition. He recently included revenues from marijuana taxes in his budget and called on lawmakers to pass a bill this year. Stephen Sweeney, the Senate President, has repeatedly expressed his support as well. The details of a final bill are expected to be the subject of extensive debate. Unfortunately, the opposition has already begun raising the same old fears, ignoring the years of data on the successes of the first states to end prohibition, Colorado and Washington.
