New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy says he wants an expansion of medical marijuana dispensaries in the Garden State — and possibly even home delivery of the weed.

"We need to treat our residents with compassion. We cannot turn a deaf ear to our veterans, the families of children facing terminal illness, or to any of the other countless New Jerseyans who only wish to be treated like people and not criminals," Murphy said Tuesday, according to philly.com.

Murphy inked an executive order directing the state health department to find ways of improving access for patients who use medical marijuana.

Philly.com says that currently New Jersey has just five medical marijuana dispensaries which forces some patients to drive long distances to obtain the drug. In addition, and current laws limit purchases to two ounces of grass per month.
