Late Wednesday, school administrators in New Jersey adopted rules to permit students with developmental disabilities to consume cannabis in non-smokable forms on campus. The action was taken In compliance with the requirements of a law signed by the New Jersey Governor earlier this week (Bill A4587). Medical Marijuana was first legalized in New Jersey in 2010 under the State’s “Compassionate Care Act.”

Following is a link to a NJ.com story written by Susan K. Livio, which provides a good discussion of the new law and rules, as well as background on the case which led to the measures. http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2015/11/nj_teens_school_adopts_medical_marijuana_policy_to.html
