Medical Marijuana Laws in New Jersey

What Are The Medical Marijuana Laws in New Jersey?

State laws change so often and many wonder if marijuana is legal in their state. In New Jersey, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I substance, which means that it has a high potential for abuse and no generally recognized medical value. (NJ Stat. Ann. § 24:21-5.) However, despite being a Schedule I drug, New Jersey does allow medical marijuana use under limited circumstances.

Under current New Jersey law, some of those circumstances would allow marijuana to be used for a specific list of ailments, including multiple sclerosis, terminal cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other chronic illnesses. It’s also approved for seizures and glaucoma if resistant to conventional treatment.
