Chris Christie signs New Jersey law easing medical marijuana restrictions for children
Reuters: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has signed a bill allowing sick children greater access to medical marijuana. He had said he would do so if the state legislature agreed to revisions.
The revisions to the bill required that at least two doctors approve the treatment; the language was also tightened to make sure only minors could get access to edible forms of marijuana besides lozenges.
"This new law will help sick kids access the program while also keeping in place appropriate safeguards," Christie said.
