When did New Jersey legalize medical marijuana?
Medical cannabis was signed into law by Gov. Jon S. Corzine in 2010. Legalizing the use of marijuana for medical reasons is an enormous leap for the Garden State. Previously, it was considered one of the states with a stiffer stance when it comes to crimes related to marijuana.
In the November 2020 election, with 67% of votes in favor, New Jersey citizens voted on permitting the possession, sale, and use of cannabis for adults 21 and over. However, at the time regulatory rules or structures were not included, so it might take a year or longer to see the licensing system and dispensaries in place. To date, residents of New Jersey who pursue relief with the help of medical cannabis can access the medication without penalty.
New Jersey Caregiver information
Caregivers are elected for minors or patients suffering from an extreme medical condition and cannot physically go to the alternative treatment center by themselves.
Caregivers should be 18 years old or above, a resident of New Jersey, and must agree to assist a qualifying patient with the medical use of marijuana.
Similar to patients, caregivers must go through the same process of registration to receive a card. Furthermore, they need to undergo and pass a criminal background check before they are deemed qualified for the position. You can check the New Jersey Department of Health for more information on Caregiver requirements.
