A two-judge panel in New Jersey ordered a state agency to halt its review of almost 150 applicants seeking to operate new medical marijuana businesses after some licenses were denied because of application technicalities

Attorney Joshua Bauchner, who filed a motion on behalf of five MMJ groups, called the decision a “big win,” according to NJ.com

Bauchner is appealing the state health department’s decision to deny licenses based on technical errors, arguing the businesses deserve a merit-based review, NJ.com reported.
