New Jersey Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal will give a round of 40-minute special lectures on the state Health Department’s medical marijuana program.
Elnahal will present guidelines to practitioners and patients on the program, which was expanded by Gov. Phil Murphy to include the treatment of anxiety, migraines, Tourette’s Syndrome, chronic pain related to musculoskeletal disorders and chronic pain of visceral origin.
Elnahal will also discuss the various forms of medicinal marijuana available at New Jersey’s Alternative Treatment Centers, as well provide an overview of reforms that have been made under the Murphy Administration, including the reduction of registration fees for patients and caregivers.
There are currently 22,000 patients, 614 physicians and 940 caregivers participating in the New Jersey Medicinal Marijuana Program.
