NEW JERSEY: The New Jersey Assembly may rebuke the Christie administration’s handling of the state’s medical marijuana program.
Lawmakers are scheduled to vote Thursday on a resolution that says Gov. Chris Christie’s Health Department has placed “arbitrary and unnecessary” restrictions on the program.
The vote comes just a day after Christie criticized the notion of legalizing marijuana in order to gain a tax windfall, calling it “blood money.”
Lawmakers contend administration regulations, like requiring doctors who prescribe marijuana to register on public lists, hurt the program.
