NJ lawmakers again debate medical marijuana
TRENTON, N.J. - November 22, 2010 -- New Jersey lawmakers on Monday will seek to change rules proposed by the Christie administration over medical marijuana.
Some lawmakers say the rules don't follow the intent of the law they passed earlier this year to make New Jersey the 14th state to allow medical marijuana.
The administration wants to license just two marijuana growers and four distribution centers. It also wants to cap the potency of medicinal pot, something no other state has done.
Under the state's plan, the first legal marijuana would be available in the Garden State sometime next year.
