TRENTON - A lawsuit filed in Trenton today claims that New Jersey?s Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is intentionally dragging its feet in regard to getting the medical marijuana program started.

Attorney Anne Davis filed the suit and says sick people are already suffering. The program was intended to benefit those with a life expectancy of six months or less.

A spokesperson for DHSS says the state is making progress and hopes to have a list of approved doctors in the next few weeks.
