3 Reasons Why the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program is Failing

3 Reasons Why the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program is Failing
BY MARY MARSHALL
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program has been notorious for its haphazard transition into action and its strict regulations, but recent numbers have revealed that participation in the program is so low it might not be able to continue successfully in the future.

According to nj.com, the program could potentially help tens of thousands of patients and only around 2,000 have signed up.

Three main reasons explain the lack of enrollment; the first is that doctors are hesitant to recommend the use of medicinal marijuana.

Only around 300 of the 21,000 physicians in the state are involved in the program and in order for patients to join they must be referred by a registered doctor, according to nj.com.
