Proposed Regulation – Board of Medical Examiners
NEWARK – The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has proposed amendments to regulations regarding the use of marijuana to treat or alleviate pain or other symptoms associated with debilitating medical conditions.
The proposal effectuates P.L. 2016, c. 53 which amended the definition of “debilitating medical condition” so that post-traumatic stress disorder could be deemed a debilitating medical condition. The proposal amends the definition of “debilitating medical condition” in N.J.A.C. 13:35-7A.2 to reflect the revised statutory definition.
The proposed regulation, and information on how to submit a comment by May 5, 2017, can be viewed at:
