FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP - New Jersey released its rules for obtaining medical marijuana, which will be available in July.

It won't be easy to be approved for a prescription as there are stringent criteria that must be met.

Under the state law, those that apply for access to medical marijuana will have to show that they have one of nine approved diseases or conditions. They'll also have to provide documentation from at least four visits to a doctor's office over the course of one year. The doctor must also vouch that traditional forms of relief have failed.

Patients will have to pay from $20-$200 per year, depending on their income.
