NJCBA statement on Gov. Phil Murphy’s proposed expansion of NJ medical marijuana program
New Jersey CannaBusiness Association President Scott Rudder issued the following statement today regarding Governor Murphy’s proposal to expand access to the state’s medical marijuana program:
“I want to thank Governor Murphy and his administration for listening to the concerns of those most impacted by the state’s medical marijuana program. This is welcome news for thousands of New Jerseyans who need access to medical marijuana but have been stymied by a ridiculously bureaucratic and ill-thought-out process. More dispensaries means greater access and increased competition, which also means lower costs. It is a win-win for those in dire need of this medicine.”
Scott Rudder is a former state legislator, mayor, veteran and current government affairs executive. In addition to his government and political leadership roles, Scott led Business Development efforts for Lockheed Martin Corporation with a focus on energy systems and radar programs.
