State issues strict rules for N.J. medical marijuana

State issues strict rules for N.J. medical marijuana

New Jersey's Medicinal Marijuana Program has come a little bit closer to reality. The state health department says medical marijuana should be available to approved patients by July 2011.

The Department of Health and Senior Services has released its draft rules, which explain how patients, primary caregivers, physicians, cultivators and dispensaries will be able to participate. It said doctors will be able to register with the department later this month, and patients whose names have been submitted by their physician will be able to register beginning in November.

The Daily Record reports the health department will begin taking applications next week from those interested in applying to be cultivators or dispensaries.

But getting into New Jersey's medical marijuana program will be no easy task: According to NJ.com, patients must have one of nine diseases or conditions and their doctors must have been treating them for at least a year or have seen them four times and be willing to vouch that traditional forms of relief have failed.

After they are approved by a state-appointed review panel, patients can either go to one of four dispensaries or arrange to get their medicine delivered to their home, according to the health department.
