N.J. hits new medical marijuana milestone under Phil Murphy

By Susan K. Livio

Call it “The Murphy Effect.”

Since Gov. Phil Murphy was sworn in on Jan. 16, a total of 4,200 patients have registered with New Jersey’s medicinal marijuana program, according to an announcement Tuesday by Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal.

New Jersey has now reached a new milestone: 20,000 people enrolled.

That figure includes 1,500 who enrolled in the last month, when the pro-cannabis governor expanded the qualifying medical condition list to include chronic pain and anxiety.

“We’re adding 100 new patients every day,” the commissioner said. “This demonstrates that there was pent-up demand. People with chronic pain now have the option of medicinal marijuana instead of opioids, and more than 100 strains are available.”
