TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Gov. Chris Christie has agreed to give chronically ill children easier access to medical marijuana.
The governor dodged reporters’ questions earlier on Friday, CBS 2’s Lou Young reported. However, four hours later his office issued a press release announcing that he had conditionally vetoed a bill on the issue because it went further than he was willing to go.
But in the 11th hour Christie agreed to allow production of ingestible forms of pot at state-approved dispensaries and to allow dispensaries to grow more than three strains of the drug, CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider reported.
