New Jersey DHSS Launches New Physician Registry for MMJ

In what appears to be yet another attempt by New Jersey to create the most restrictive medical marijuana program in the country, yesterday the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services luanched the physician registry for the state's Medical Marijuana Program. Not only will physicians have to "certify that they have completed medical education in Addiction Medicine and Pain Management within the past two years," but they will also have to attest that they "have provided education for the patient on the lack of scientific consensus for the use of medical marijuana." Physicians will also have to be approved by DHSS before they can be added to the registry.
