Medical Marijuana Bill Advances In New Jersey

June 5, 2009

New Jersey (ChattahBox) – New Jersey is growing closer to being the latest state to pass a bill that will allow chronically ill patients to use medical marijuana to manage pain, WPIX reports.

The medical marijuana bill was passed with an 8-1 vote, and if passed in the senate, will allow patients to petition the state to be given a special card that authorizes the use of marijuana.

It is another step towards full legalization, which has become one of the most talked about (and heavily supported) measure in the US today.  The bill is making a second go around after it was tightened to address concerns the drug could become too widely available.  New Jersey Gov. Corzine has said he would sign the bill if it reaches his desk.

    Let’s put the cartels out of business.
    Let ordinary Americans grow a little marijuana in their own back yards.
    $100 per year for a permit for 12 plants.
    Would anybody go for it?
