In a recent Appellate Division holding which has been approved for publication, the Court ruled that the N.J. Division of Consumer Affairs has the authority under New Jersey law to move marijuana from a Sch I drug to a Sch IV substance.

This change was considered to be in conformity with the latest research and legislative findings that marijuana has some therapeutic value.

There is a dissent in the case so if there is an appeal of the decision the final word on this issue will then come from the Supreme Court.
