Gov. Phil Murphy recently announced a major expansion of the state’s cannabis program from the six dispensaries currently in operation up to 108 across the state, which would include cultivation, manufacturing and dispensary facilities.
A medical marijuana expansion bill that would add more dispensaries and allow for an increase in the amount of product available to patients each month recently passed the Senate. Assembly leaders said they would not hold a planned vote on the proposal Monday and are planning to make changes to the legislation.
The bill does not allow for home cultivation.
Nearly half of the 33 states with cannabis programs allow patients to grow plants for their own consumption.
