So as soon as I published info on HOW TO GET MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN NEW JERSEY, the New Jersey Dept. of Health made some changes to the Medical Marijuana Program in New Jersey. So, I’m going to update you on these changes that went into effect March 27, 2018.
#1 They approved additional medical conditions, which include anxiety, migraines, Tourette’s syndrome, chronic pain related to musculoskeletal disorders, and chronic visceral pain.
#2 Veterans and seniors–65 and older–now also qualify for the discounted registration fee.
#3 Any physician who meets the requirements of the medical marijuana program will be able to prescribe marijuana without appearing on a public registry. The Department’s website will continue to be available for physicians who would like to publicize their availability and willingness to offer medical marijuana as a treatment option for patients, but the public physician registry will no longer be a requirement.
Now there have been other changes that have been proposed, but they haven’t gone into effect yet. But, I’ll continue to keep you posted.
