Feds Undermine Medical Marijuana at NJ Hospitals

Feds Undermine Medical Marijuana at NJ Hospitals

Confusion over medical marijuana laws prevent patients from using the drug in some New Jersey hospitals.

Although the state law allows the use of marijuana under certain circumstances, federal law still considers the drug illegal. This creates a complicated situation for hospitals with federal funding, causing some to deny patients the use of the drug, according to northjersey.com.

14-year-old Jackson Stormes was hospitalized at the Hackensack University Medical Center in May where he was told he could not partake in the use of medical marijuana prescribed for epilepsy.

“We feel we would be in a legal no man’s land with the federal government. We put all our licenses in jeopardy, every grant in jeopardy, unless we get some Department of Justice guidance,” said Chairman of the children’s hospital Dr. Jeffrey Boscamp, according to northjersey.com.
