MEDICAL MARIJUANA CONDITIONS FOR NEW JERSEY - QUALIFYING CONDITIONS
On March 27, 2018, Governor Murphy announced major reforms outlined in a report in response to Executive Order #6 which directed a comprehensive review of the program. The reforms focus on ways to expand access to marijuana for medical purposes and to reduce barriers that patients face when they are seeking access to medicinal marijuana. Recommendations include a review of regulations and recommendations for statutory action. Five new categories of qualifying debilitating medical conditions (anxiety, migraines, Tourette’s syndrome, chronic pain related to musculoskeletal disorders, and chronic visceral pain) have been added. The DOH will also be accepting requests from existing ATCs for waivers to allow satellite locations.
The Department reminds patients that recreational marijuana use is a separate issue requiring legislation to implement in this State, and the Department makes no comment on pending or contemplated legislation.
