New Jersey Governor Looks Into Major Medical Marijuana Expansion

Colorado Legalizes Marijuana For Recreational Use

The pro-marijuana movement just keeps trucking along, with New Jersey’s newly inaugurated governor directing officials to study the state’s limited medical marijuana program with a “focus on expanding patient access.”

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy shared on Tuesday that his administration’s approach to medical cannabis would be very different than that of his predecessor, Republican and former presidential candidate Chris Christie, according to Marijuana Moment.

“Roadblocks put in place by the past administration means the law’s spirit has been stifled,” the new governor said before signing an executive order mandating that the state Department of Health and Board of Medical Examiners begin a 60-day review of the program.

Murphy also tweeted that he knows the healing power of the controversial drug, and “will not deny people compassionate care any longer.”
