New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has announced an agreement with Assemblyman Reed Gusciora over the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. The deal allows six alternative treatment centers to grow and distribute the drug. Christie had originally wanted four centers to serve as dispensaries and only two to serve as growers. As part of the deal, satellite locations and home delivery of marijuana will not be permitted under the state's program, which is administered by the Department of Health and Senior Services.
