The New Jersey Assembly postponed voting Monday on a medical cannabis expansion measure to avoid walking into a possible veto by Gov. Phil Murphy.

Lawmakers instead plan to try to resolve disagreements with Murphy’s office over the bill’s tax rate and program oversight provisions, reported.

While the legislation has been slowly working its way through the process, Murphy – to the ire of some lawmakers – has gone ahead with his own MMJ expansion plan that calls for the issuing of up to 108 new licenses.
