The Coalition for Medical Marijuana of New Jersey says one possible solution to keeping up with the increasing demand is to let patients grow their own.
“At $500 an ounce, it’s unaffordable,” said Peter Rosenfeld with the Coalition for Medical Marijuana. “If they can grow their own medication, this is something that would really improve the quality of life of many people.”
Gov. Phil Murphy recently announced a major expansion of the state’s medical marijuana program from the six dispensaries currently in operation up to 108 across the state, which would include cultivation, manufacturing and dispensary facilities.
