New Jersey Marijuana Laws
Whether you require marijuana for a medical condition or wish to use it recreationally, you owe it to yourself to learn about the legal gray area surrounding the drug. Watch the following video by experienced New Jersey criminal defense attorney Carl Spector to learn more about New Jersey marijuana laws and exactly how marijuana is and is not legal in the state.
New Jersey has passed a medical marijuana law, and if people meet certain criteria, they are now eligible to go to doctors to potentially receive prescriptions for medical marijuana. These doctors must determine whether their patients meet each criterion that would suggest that medical marijuana could be beneficial, and if the doctors decide to certify their patients’ requests, the patients can go to dispensaries to fulfill that certification.
Bear in mind that it is still illegal to smoke marijuana in public, to smoke marijuana behind the wheel of an automobile, and to possess marijuana under most circumstances. You must be careful if you have a medical marijuana certification that your possession is completely within the terms of your license to carry.
