Unlike the ten or so states of America and some of Canada, New Jersey has not yet passed the bill to legalise marijuana to be used as a recreational drug. There has been proposed a general public voting in 2020 to help the governing bodies in their decision. The governor of the state Murphy has come out with full support to the legalisation of marijuana in the state and endorsed the general public vote. While residents of New Jersey cannot partake in the delights of cannabis edibles, the one use of the drug that has been legalised is medicinal. Now anybody living in the state of New Jersey can go to an NJ marijuana dispensary and buy medicinal marijuana with a prescription. The health department has also declared that they will be conducting more research on medicinal marijuana inviting applications for establishment of marijuana manufacturing units. The demand for medical marijuana has reportedly doubled this year and efforts are being made to meet market demands.
An expansion in the marijuana dispensaries is in the cards
The Jake Honig Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act is almost about to be approved by the legislature. While getting to buy cannabis edibles is a luxury, medical marijuana if one can buy it at any local NJ marijuana dispensary can soothe critical ailments. Many people suffer from problems of insomnia, nervous anxiety, joint pains and even those afflicted with autism derive much relief from medical marijuana like CBD oils. This law could help solve numerous problems. It will also increase the revenue earned by the state since marijuana dispensary is predicted to be a huge business grossing in quite a lot of money when fully functional. All those who have been working on medicinal marijuana development can now join the program and sell their products legally. As expansion happens, dispensaries will be set up all over the state so that all have access. Last date of application is 20 august so send in your proposal if you wish to set up a working marijuana cultivating and medicine manufacture unit.
The government has assured those concerned that it will look into the security as well as quality side of this initiative. Some have protested this move fearing this would affect children if they find NJ marijuana dispensaries around every corner. But every applicant has to obtain a permission from the local community of the area they are planning to set up.
Medicinal marijuana has changed the life of many patients who have had access to it. We cannot deny that marijuana does soothe the nerves, in other states cannabis edibles are sold to help people get a good night’s sleep. Anyone with a bad case of insomnia or migraine would find effective cure thanks to the bill. Legislative had legalised medicinal marijuana 10 years ago but never took steps to ensure that there is development in the area. By creating a chain of licensed dealers and ensuring quality marijuana, the ground could be prepared for legalising marijuana as a recreational drug in the future.
