    After citing a need to stop “creating addicts” and “killing people,” a New Jersey workers’ compensation judge ordered Freehold Township to compensate an employee for his use of medical marijuana.

    “If there’s anything criminal here, it’s how these drugs have been force-fed to injured people creating addicts,” said Lionel Simon, a New Jersey workers’ compensation judge, during the June 28, 2018, hearing. “I believe, and I think the science supports this, medical marijuana is safer, it’s less addictive, [and]it is better for the treatment of pain.”
