Role of the Medical Marijuana Doctor
Under New Jersey law, only registered physicians can evaluate you and if you meet the specific criteria, certify you to use medical marijuana. The certification is valid for three months. At the end of that period, you must be re-evaluated. If the quality of your life has improved, you may have the certification renewed.
Registration with the State Department of Health & Local Dispensaries
If you are approved, the Doctor will register you within the State DOH website. After you complete your registration process you can vist an authorized medical marijuana dispensary for a consultaion wherein the staff at the dispensary will show you the strains available and make any recommendations as to the type that may benefit your specific condition.
While legal for medical purposes in New Jersey, the Federal Government still considers marijuana a Schedule I drug. For this reason, health insurance will not cover the costs of your doctors visit and medical marijuana.
