Gov. Phil Murphy has made it clear that he’s committed to expanding the state’s medical marijuana program, and he has the numbers to back up that promise: 23,629 people have been added since he announced the expansion early in 2018, bringing the total number of enrollees to 40,652 as of yesterday.

The number of doctors and caregivers involved in the program also continues to climb: 380 doctors have come aboard, bringing the total to 893. And 853 new caregivers have signed on, for a total of 1,689.
