TRENTON - (AP) - The state Department of Health and Senior Services says 20 groups have applied for licenses to grow and sell medical marijuana.

Two judges refused yesterday to extend the application deadline. Groups that were considering applying had asked the judges for the extension.

The groups objected to being made to apply now - and pay a $20,000 application fee - when the state's regulations for cannabis for patients may be in flux.

The state has not finalized its rules. Lawmakers are considering trying to invalidate the regulations.

They claim Gov. Chris Christie's administration proposed rules that do not meet the legislative intent of the law passed last year to allow medical marijuana for some patients.
