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 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.
