Medical Marijuana Hobbled by New Jersey Rules

Some of the doctors allowed by law to provide marijuana as a medical regiment for certain diseases have stopped taking new patients and some are requiring a cash payment of $500 for the initial visit before recommending the drug, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
