Muni-mail – Gov Christie signs bill allowing cannabis oil in schools

Earlier this month, Gov. Christie signed a bill (A4587) requiring schools to adopt polices that will permit the use of edible cannabis for qualifying patients under CUMMA (New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act, N.J.S.A. 24:6I-1 to -16).  This bill requires school boards and facilities serving developmentally-disabled students to establish guidelines allowing registered patients with the state medicinal marijuana program to use edible marijuana on the grounds of the facility or school bus under the supervision of a parent, guardian, or primary caregiver.
