More than two years after New Jersey legislators approved a medical marijuana law in the state, residents will now be able to register for identification cards with the state’s Department of Health, the first step in the process to obtaining a medical prescription for cannabis. The ID cards, valid for two years, cost $200 for patients and $20 for those on assistance programs like Medicare and Medicaid. New Jersey is one of seventeen states and the District of Columbia that have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, although it remains prohibited on the federal level.
