New Jersey lawmakers advanced a bill out of two committees Monday that would expand the state’s medical cannabis program.

The measure includes a provision to transfer the program’s oversight from the state Department of Health to a dedicated regulatory commission, according to NJ.com.

It also would expand the number of companies providing medical marijuana.

The state is moving to expand its fast-growing MMJ program after an effort to legalize adult-use cannabis withered last week.
