Christie signs changes to NJ medical marijuana law



TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie has signed a law changing details of New Jersey’s medical marijuana program with the aim of getting sick children forms of the drug that could help them.

Christie signed the bill Tuesday, a day after his revised version was adopted by the state Assembly.

The bill ends a restriction on legal dispensaries that had allowed them to grow only three strains of marijuana. It also allows them to produce pot in an edible form, but only for sale to children with qualifying conditions.

Lawmakers had also voted to get rid of the requirement that children get at least two doctors to approve their use of the drug. But Christie used a conditional veto to eliminate that change.

Both chambers of the Legislature accepted Christie’s revised bill.
