NJ Medical Marijuana Program Grows

New Jersey’s medical marijuana program has seen a 150 percent increase in the number of patients participating. That’s according to Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy’s office, who said Thursday that the program has added 25,500 patients since he took office in January 2018. The program now has more than 42,528 patients. The news comes just after Murphy and Democratic legislative leaders announced an agreement on legislation to legalize recreational marijuana.
