Murphy shelves his promised expansion of medical marijuana while leaders work on a new legal weed deal

"Gov. Phil Murphy has withdrawn a planned announcement to forge ahead with a massive expansion of the New Jersey’s medicinal marijuana program, one day after a failed attempt to pass a bill to legalize recreational pot in the state, sources told NJ Advance Media.

Hours after top state lawmakers called off the legal weed measure Monday, Murphy told a town hall audience he was prepared to announce Tuesday or Wednesday that state would seek applications for dozens of new growers, cultivators and retailers for the medicinal program that currently relies on six operators serving 42,000 patients.

He said such a move could boost enrollment to as many as 200,000 patients.

“We’ll likely aggressively further open up the medical regime in the next day or two,” the Democratic governor said during the event at a Union City elementary school, adding the number of people enrolled in the program “probably should be at 150,000 or 200,000.”"

This bullshit is just getting comical now. And NOT funny comical. This is exactly the mistake they made in the beginning of this mess - linking already legal medical with recreational use. chris christie fucked up the entire medical program but instead of just fixing the mess he made DEMOCRATS WHO HOLD POWER ACROSS THE ENTIRE STATE GOVERNMENT just can't seem to get the easy stuff done. Over sixty percent of New Jersey voters approve of recreational use. Over NINETY PERCENT approve of medicinal use.

But we just can't seem to get it done. Funny, when that criminal chris christie was in office and the Democrats held the Assembly and Senate, they just couldn't seem to find a way to stop him.

This makes us look weak and ineffective and it's all over petty inside squabbles. After performing like this while in full control what the hell do they expect next election?
