CRANBURY — After signing a Executive Order directing the New Jersey Department of Health to examine all aspects of the state's medical marijuana program with a specific focus on making it more accessible for patients, Governor Phil Murphy toured the Break Water Treatment and Wellness Center on Wednesday.

15,000 patients currently participate in New Jersey's medical marijuana program. Andrew Zaleski, the General Manager of Break Water Treatment and Wellness Center told FiOS1 News that he believes the Murphy administration will tear down some of the road blocks the Christie administration set up.

"They're going to have access, they're going to have access to what they might be buying on the streets from Colorado and California. We can have that here," Zaleski said.

Murphy says that medical marijuana is life or death for many people in the state, which is why he is pushing to expand the program. However, his administration has not announced when they begin working on his campaign promise of legalization.
