TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has announced an expansion of the state’s medical marijuana program.
Murphy unveiled the expansion Tuesday. It came the same day that a panel the Democratic governor established published its recommendations.
Among the changes Murphy’s making are the addition of five qualifying conditions: anxiety, migraines, Tourette’s syndrome, chronic pain related to musculoskeletal disorders and chronic visceral pain.
The patient fee will also be reduced from $200 to $100, with a $20 rate for veterans and seniors.
