State Senator Nicholas Scutari says he's taking the next step to void New Jersey's proposed medical marijuana regulations.

State Senator Nicholas Scutari and other advocates for medical marijuana say the rules drafted by the administration of Republican Governor Chris Christie are so strict that legitimate patients might not be able to get the drugs that would help them.

In November and December, lawmakers passed resolutions declaring the proposed regulations didn't meet their intent.

The resolutions gave the administration until Wednesday to submit new regulations. But Scutari, a Democrat from Linden, says the administration did not comply.

Scuatri says he's scheduling a hearing--the next step toward voiding the proposed rules.
