In the News

New Jersey, News - NJUMR coalition advocates legalizing and regulating marijuana NJUMR coalition advocates legalizing and regulating marijuana New Jersey - Medical Cannabis (marijuana) | A bill to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol, A2068, was introduced at the beginning of this year by Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, and more recently he introduced a bill that would allow the voters to decide whether to legalize marijuana — but only in Atlantic City — in an attempt to boost the city’s failing economy. Another bill, to tax and regulate marijuana statewide, is expected later this year from Sen. Nicholas Scutari, who recently went on a fact-finding mission to Colorado. Voters throughout the state are ready for reform; 58 percent of New Jerseyans support replacing prohibition with regulation according to a 2015 poll. Yet, under current New Jersey law, possession of even a single joint for non-medical purposes is punishable by up to six months of incarceration and up to a $1,000 fine. >>   Visit - www.njumr.org/

    Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in New Jersey.

      Info on New Jersey and Medical Cannabis 

    New Jersey has a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW.

    SUMMARY: [ Senate Bill 119 - Approved: Jan. 11, 2010 by House, 48-14; by Senate, 25-13 Signed into law by Gov. Jon Corzine on Jan. 18, 2010 ] Protects "patients who use marijuana to alleviate suffering from debilitating medical conditions, as well as their physicians, primary caregivers, and those who are authorized to produce marijuana for medical purposes" from "arrest, prosecution, property forfeiture, and criminal and other penalties." Also provides for the creation of alternative treatment centers, "at least two each in the northern, central, and southern regions of the state. The first two centers issued a permit in each region shall be nonprofit entities, and centers subsequently issued permits may be nonprofit or for-profit entities."

    Governor Jon Corzine signed the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act into law on January 18, 2010. As initially passed, the law was scheduled to take effect in July 2010. However, lawmakers in June amended the legislation at the behest of Republican Gov. Chris Christie to delay the enactment of the law until October 1, 2010. The law mandates the state to promulgate rules governing the distribution of medical cannabis to state-authorized patients. These rules shall address the creation of up to six state-licensed "alternative treatment centers." The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services released draft rules (385 KB) outlining the registration and application process on Oct. 6, 2010. A public hearing to discuss the proposed rules was held on Dec. 6, 2010 at at the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, according to the New Jersey Register.

    On Dec. 20, 2011, Senator Nicholas Scutari (D), lead sponsor of the medical marijuana bill, submitted Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 140 (25 KB) declaring that the "Board of Medical Examiners proposed medicinal marijuana program rules are inconsistent with legislative intent." The New Jersey Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens committee held a public hearing to discuss SCR 140 and a similar bill, SCR 130, on Jan. 20, 2010. On Feb. 3, 2011, DHSS proposed new rules (200 KB) that streamlined the permit process for cultivating and dispensing, prohibited home delivery by alternative treatment centers, and required that "conditions originally named in the Act be resistant to conventional medical therapy in order to qualify as debilitating medical conditions." On Aug. 9, 2012, the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program opened the patient registration system on its website. Patients must have a physician's recommendation, a government-issued ID, and proof of New Jersey residency to register. The first dispensary is expected to be licensed to open in September.

    New Jersey - Medical Cannabis (Marijuana) Program, Approved Conditions Approved Conditions: Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: cancer, glaucoma, seizure and/or spasticity disorders (including epilepsy), Lou Gehrig's disease, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, HIV/AIDS, inflammatory bowel disease (including Crohn’s disease), any terminal illness if a doctor has determined the patient will die within a year. Other conditions are subject to approval by the state Department of Health. Patients authorized to use marijuana under this act will not be permitted to cultivate their own cannabis, and are limited to the possession of two ounces of marijuana per month. Additional information on this measure is available here.

    New Jersey - Medical Cannabis (Marijuana) Program, Limits Possession/Cultivation: (Limits) Physicians determine how much marijuana a patient needs and give written instructions to be presented to an alternative treatment center. The maximum amount for a 30-day period is two ounces.

    PATIENT POSSESSION LIMITS: Two ounces per month

    HOME CULTIVATION: No

    AMENDMENT(s):   Yes

      UPDATEs: The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services released draft rules (385 KB) outlining the registration and application process on Oct. 6, 2010. A public hearing to discuss the proposed rules was held on Dec. 6, 2010 at at the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, according to the New Jersey Register. On Dec. 20, 2011, Senator Nicholas Scutari (D), lead sponsor of the medical marijuana bill, submitted Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 140 (25 KB) declaring that the "Board of Medical Examiners proposed medicinal marijuana program rules are inconsistent with legislative intent." The New Jersey Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens committee held a public hearing to discuss SCR 140 and a similar bill, SCR 130, on Jan. 20, 2010.

On Aug. 9, 2012, the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program opened the patient registration system on its website. Patients must have a physician's recommendation, a government-issued ID, and proof of New Jersey residency to register. The first dispensary is expected to be licensed to open in September. On Oct. 16, 2012, the Department of Health issued the first dispensary permit (24 KB) to Greenleaf Compassion Center, allowing it to operate as an Alternative Treatment Center and dispense marijuana. The center opened on Dec. 6, 2012, becoming New Jersey's first dispensary. Five other treatment centers are "in various stages of finalizing locations or background examinations of the principals of their organizations."

      Amended: Amended: SB 2842 (40 KB) Signed into law by Gov. Chris Christie on Sep. 10, 2013 following legislative adoption of his conditional veto (10 KB) | Allows edible forms of marijuana only for qualifying minors, who must receive approval from a pediatrician and a psychiatrist.

    CAREGIVERS: Yes. Primary Caregiver is a person who has agreed to assist with a registered qualifying patient's medical use of marijuana. Primary caregiver cannot be the patient’s physician. Primary caregiver must be a resident of New Jersey. The primary caregiver can never have been convicted of a felony drug offense. The caregiver must be 18 years of age or older. The caregiver may only have one qualifying patient at any one time. N.J. Stat. Ann. §24:6I-3 (2010).

    New Jersey - Local Resources, Coalition for Medical Marijuana - New Jersey Coalition for Medical Marijuana - New Jersey | The mission of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana–New Jersey (CMM-NJ) is: To bring about safe and legal access to medical marijuana for New Jersey patients who are under the care of licensed physicians and nurse practitioners.

    Sometimes a personal experience moves you to action. Jim Miller’s wife, Cheryl, had multiple sclerosis (MS). Marijuana was the most effective method of relieving the painful symptoms of her condition. Yet Cheryl faced arrest and imprisonment simply for using a drug that relieved her suffering. As a result, Jim and I have formed a coalition that seeks to allow patients to have legal access to medical marijuana here in New Jersey. Sadly, Cheryl died in June 2003 from complications from MS. But thousands of New Jersey patients could still benefit from the therapeutic effects of marijuana. These include cancer patients, AIDS patients, glaucoma patients, and spinal cord patients. Marijuana has proven to be effective in all of these conditions. Marijuana also has an extremely wide margin of safety for use under medical supervision and cannot cause lethal reactions.

    New Jersey - The unintended impact of New Jersey's new medical marijuana law on the
workplace The unintended impact of New Jersey's new medical marijuana law on the workplace - by Lowenstein Sandler PC, Amy Komoroski Wiwi and Nicole P. Crifo - USA - January 22 2010 | On January 18, 2010, as one of his final acts before leaving office, Governor Corzine signed into law the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act, S. 119, 213th Leg., (N.J. 2010) (“Compassionate Use Act,” or the “Act”), making New Jersey the nation’s fourteenth state to legalize the use of medical marijuana by qualifying patients. The law will become effective on July 1, 2010, but in the interim, the Commissioner of the Department of Health and Senior Services ("DHSS") and the Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs ("DCA") will begin to take administrative action to effectuate the provisions of the Act. Employers who perform drug testing on job applicants and/or employees should take the time to revisit their policies on drug use and drug testing to clearly state their position on medical use of marijuana so as to navigate the various liabilities that may arise as a result of this change in the law.

    1. Introduction

    The Act does not affect federal laws concerning marijuana, but decriminalizes medical use of marijuana under New Jersey state law under particular circumstances. Like the thirteen states that already allow medical marijuana use, New Jersey’s Act was passed to protect from criminal prosecution patients who use medical marijuana to alleviate the symptoms or side effects of treatment related to certain “debilitating medical conditions.” The debilitating medical conditions covered by the Act include epilepsy, HIV, AIDS, cancer, ALS and multiple sclerosis, among others. DHSS will maintain a confidential registry of qualifying patients and issue registry identification cards to these individuals. The Act states that a qualifying patient “shall not be subject to any civil or administrative penalty, or denied any right or privilege” related to the medical use of marijuana, but it also explicitly provides that employers are not required “to accommodate the medical use of marijuana in any workplace.”

    2. Employers Must Determine Whether They Wish to Consider Medical Marijuana Use in Making Employment Decisions Based Upon Positive Drug Test Results

    Employers who perform drug testing on employees and job applicants should consider carefully how they want to respond to the Act. As mentioned above, the Act specifically exempts employers from accommodating "the medical use of marijuana in any workplace.” Though it is clear that employers are not required to permit employees to use marijuana in the workplace, the extent to which this carve-out may apply to an employer's treatment of job applicants or employees who test positive for marijuana use in connection with routine drug testing, is not directly addressed. With certain exceptions, the courts in other states that have considered similar legislation have generally determined that employers are not required to accommodate any use of medical marijuana by its employees or job applicants, whether at or away from the employer's site. In other words, an employer probably will not be required to consider whether an employee who tests positive for marijuana use is a registrant under the state statute when making employment decisions on the basis of a confirmed positive drug test result for marijuana.

    3. Employers Considering Medical Marijuana Use Must Consider Various Factors

    Whether or not required to do so, employers may wish to permit applicants and employees who suffer from debilitating medical conditions to explain a positive drug test result for marijuana, and to avoid taking adverse employment action against individuals who possess a registration identification card. Among other things, an employer must consider: (1) whether consideration of medical marijuana registry status could subject it to liability under laws prohibiting disability discrimination; (2) whether it will be able to verify an individual's inclusion on the registry; and (3) whether an accommodation of medical marijuana use is appropriate to a particular workplace.

      1. Medical Marijuana Use and Disability Discrimination Laws In particular, because the Act permits participation only by individuals suffering from a "debilitating medical condition," employers presented with registry identification cards will have constructive, if not actual, notice that the employee or applicant at issue suffers from a condition that likely qualifies as a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and/or the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (“NJLAD”). Both the ADA and the NJLAD prohibit an employer from taking any adverse employment action against a qualified individual on the basis of that individual's actual or perceived disability, and may require an employer to provide a reasonable accommodation to an employee or job applicant, unless doing so would cause undue hardship for the employer. Employers choosing to consider an applicant or employee's registration status when confronted with positive drug test results must be cautious to avoid taking any adverse action against that employee or applicant that could be interpreted as being based on that individual's actual or perceived disability. Accordingly, if an employer determines that it will consider an individual's inclusion on the medical marijuana registry as a "defense" to a positive drug test result, the employer should not thereafter take adverse action against that individual on the basis of the positive drug test result.

      2. Verification of Registrant Status Of concern to employers is the possibility that its applicants or employees who are not actual registrants may attempt to use the Act as an excuse for a confirmed positive drug test result by presenting counterfeit medical marijuana registry cards. As written, the Act does not provide employers with any method to verify an individual's inclusion on the registry. Indeed, the Act declares the registry list confidential and restricts access to DHSS and DCA personnel for use in connection with their official duties and law enforcement personnel as necessary to verify that an alleged medical marijuana user is lawfully in possession of a registry card. Though it is possible that the DHSS or DCA may enact regulations that will permit employers to verify an employee's or applicant's status, employers may have to coordinate with law enforcement to verify an individual's registry status, or be unable to do so at all.

      3. Workplace Safety and Security Employers may wish to consider the character of a particular workplace when determining how they will respond to a qualifying patient who tests positive for marijuana. For instance, if the use of marijuana â€" even for medical purposes â€" could pose a threat to the safety of employees in the workplace, an accommodation of medical marijuana use may not be possible. Employers in such a position should consider adopting a policy that does not permit applicants and employees to explain a positive drug test result for marijuana by presentation of a registry card. Instead, those employers should adopt a policy that will treat all individuals testing positive for marijuana in the same manner regardless of registry status.

    4. What Employers Need to Do

      * Review the company’s policies and other documents addressing drug use and testing (including drug testing consent forms) and update them as necessary to state your position on medical marijuana use by job applicants and employees.

      * Ensure that all Human Resources and drug testing personnel are aware of the company’s policy regarding medical marijuana.

      * Adopt appropriate measures for maintaining the confidentiality of employees' and applicants' registry status.

      * Maintain uniformity in the enforcement of any drug testing policy and response to positive test results.

      * Be cautious when presented with a medical marijuana defense to a positive drug test, and contact legal counsel whenever an employee requests an accommodation for medical marijuana use in order to determine whether the typical application of the company’s drug policy is appropriate.

    New Jersey - Legal Resources Compassionate Associates Rebuts NJ Govenor | Let’s Be Blunt with Governor Christie! The New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act (“CUMMA”) deems medical marijuana to be “medicine” – based on proven, scientific and medical research. While the new law will literally benefit the lives of thousands of New Jersey patients (and their families and loved ones), it is also the strictest medicalmarijuana law in the country. Under the law, a very limited number of patient illnesses/conditions are included for medical-marijuana treatment. In addition, after receiving a physician’s “certification” for medical-marijuana use in accordance with CUMMA, “qualified” patients are then allowed to register with only a single Alternative Treatment Center (ATC), and the patient must then purchase all of his/her medical marijuana at that single location. Moreover, unlike the other 13 states that have decriminalized medical marijuana, the New Jersey law does not allow a medical-marijuana patient to grow even the smallest amount of the medicine on their own (such growing-activity is still criminal and illegal in New Jersey, even by a medical-marijuana “qualified,” patient with a certification from a doctor . . . ).

    In sum, New Jersey has enacted in CUMMA the most restrictive medicalmarijuana program in the entire country. (Hey, it aint perfect and CompassionAssociates.org is looking to expand the law’s reach, but we will take it!) However, while campaigning for office, Governor Christie publicly stated many times, on record, that he vehemently opposed CUMMA because “it was too lax.” Governor Christie’s opinion aside, after both the New Jersey Senate and Assembly separately debated, voted on, and passed CUMMA, it was signed into LAW by then-Governor Corzine.

    New Jersey - Legal Resources The Face of New Jersey Medical Marijuana | What is in a name? Well, a lot. A name identifies us, describes us, and whether we like it or not, a name often defines us. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson may have said it best, “No orator can top the one who can give good nicknames”. But names come in many different forms and origins. Your first name came from your parents and was a result of the time period and culture in which you were born. But your names that you acquire throughout your life come from many different sources. You might be goalie, best friend, a lifeguard, Prom King/Queen, Spouse, Manager, Parent, Senator and Grandparent. However, you may also acquire some names which you really wish you did not want: fatso, victim, inmate, divorcee, defendant and often the most difficult of all “patient”. Once you get that title (xyz illness patient), everything else seems to change. It’s as if your life up to that point is permanently altered by this new title. Everything about your health is going to be referred to the past tense. I WAS fine until...I WAS able to do that until... and My friends used to invite me until... And often the most hurtful of all is the loss of your most precious title, your name. From now on you will be referred to as the guy with (XYZ) illness, the (XYZ) disease patient or spouse of the (XYZ) sufferer. Read more >>>

Gonzales v. Raich (2005) held in a 6-3 decision that the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution allowed the federal government to ban the use of cannabis, including medical use even if local laws allow it.

    New Jersey, News - NJUMR coalition advocates legalizing and regulating marijuana NJUMR coalition advocates legalizing and regulating marijuana - Last update: August 16, 2016 | A bill to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol, A2068, was introduced at the beginning of this year by Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, and more recently he introduced a bill that would allow the voters to decide whether to legalize marijuana — but only in Atlantic City — in an attempt to boost the city’s failing economy. Another bill, to tax and regulate marijuana statewide, is expected later this year from Sen. Nicholas Scutari, who recently went on a fact-finding mission to Colorado. Voters throughout the state are ready for reform; 58 percent of New Jerseyans support replacing prohibition with regulation according to a 2015 poll. Yet, under current New Jersey law, possession of even a single joint for non-medical purposes is punishable by up to six months of incarceration and up to a $1,000 fine. >>   Visit - http://www.mpp.org/states/new-jersey/

    An impressive coalition of public safety, medical, civil rights and religious organizations, and individuals is working to enact sensible marijuana policies in the Garden State, including the ACLU of New Jersey, NAACP State Conference of New Jersey, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), and MPP. The coalition — New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform (NJUMR) —advocates ending prohibition by legalizing, taxing, and regulating marijuana like alcohol for adults. Please check out the coalition’s site, and then urge your legislators to support treating marijuana similarly to alcohol.

    New Jersey medical marijuana program slowly growing despite onerous restrictions | Although the Garden State’s medical marijuana program was signed into law in 2010, implementation has been slow. Currently, it serves less than 8,000 patients — a far lower proportion of the population than most other medical cannabis states — despite having been made law more than five years ago. Meanwhile, only five of the six permitted treatment centers are operational. Gov. Chris Christie has attributed this to a lack of demand for medical marijuana and ignored the fact that some families have been forced to move to Colorado to access the medicine they need. The low participation is more likely caused by unreasonably strict requirements, including that patient eligibility must be reassessed at least every 90 days, and doctors must register and take a course in order to recommend medical marijuana. As a result, only about 380 doctors — out of over 27,000 actively practicing in the state — can recommend. In addition, the prices for medical cannabis are among the highest in the nation, making the program inaccessible for many patients, 48% of whom receive benefits from Medicaid or similar programs.

    In a bright spot, a panel of experts that will be allowed to add additional qualifying conditions has finally been appointed, and petitions to add qualifying conditions are being accepted August 1 through August 31, 2016. Meanwhile, the legislature sent Gov. Chris Christie a bill that adds PTSD as a qualifying condition for medical cannabis. He has until September 16 to sign or veto the bill, or it will become law without his signature. New Jersey is also one of the only jurisdictions that explicitly allows minors to use medical marijuana at school.

      some HISTORY  

    New Jersey - State  Senate approves the New Jersey Compassionate use Medical Marijuana Act The New Jersey State Senate approved the "New Jersey Compassionate use Medical Marijuana Act" (S119) on Monday, February 23, 2009 at approximately 4:20 PM by a vote of 22 to 16 in the State House Senate Chambers in Trenton, NJ. Many supporters of the bill attended the voting session, led by the Coalition for Medical Marijuana--New Jersey, Inc. (CMMNJ). The senate vote was a significant step in the legislative process to protect patients who use marijuana on the recommendation of a physician. The bill will next go to the New Jersey Assembly, the lower house, for votes in the health committee and entire assembly. Governor Jon Corzine has said on several occasions that he supports medical marijuana and that he will sign the bill when it gets to his desk. New Jersey would become the 14th state in the nation to legalize medical marijuana if it passes this legislation into law.

    S119 will remove the state penalties for the possession, use and cultivation of a small amount of marijuana when a licensed physician recommends it for a debilitating medical condition. Qualifying medical conditions include chronic pain, cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, Crohnâ?Ts disease, etc. Patients will be issued ID cards in a program run by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). Patients will be permitted to grow up to six plants and possess one ounce of marijuana, but they will not be permitted to use their therapeutic marijuana in public or while operating motor vehicles. Patients may designate a caregiver or treatment center to grow the plants for them, but the caregiver/center must also register with DHSS. CMMNJ Executive Director, Ken Wolski, RN said, â?oThe bill is very conservative. No medical marijuana state has a smaller plant limit or possession amount. Still, it will help a tremendous number of patients here. We applaud the senators who supported this bill.â?ť The American Nurses Association, the American College of Physicians, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the American Public Health Association, the American Academy of HIV Medicine and many other professional healthcare organizations have endorsed medical marijuana.

    CMMNJ, a 501(c)(3) public charity, provides education about the benefits of safe and legal access to medical marijuana. For more info, contact:

    New Jersey - News SHORE MAN RECALLS WIFE'S MEDICAL-MARIJUANA FIGHT | On her deathbed in 2003, Cheryl Miller made her husband James promise her that he would not give up their fight to have the use of marijuana for medical purposes legalized. Having suffered from a debilitating form of multiple sclerosis since 1971, Miller used marijuana to ease the painful symptoms of her disease.

    Together, the Toms River couple engaged in carefully crafted acts of civil disobedience that culminated in 1998 with chomping down a piece of marijuana outside the office of a congressman opposed to legalization of the drug for any reason. So when the Legislature on Monday approved a bill that would make New Jersey the 14th state to allow chronically ill patients access to marijuana for medical reasons, the occasion was bittersweet for James Miller, 57, who still lives in Ocean County.

    "I didn't hear the name Cheryl Miller mentioned. It's not why I went, to hear my late wife's name mentioned," Miller said Wednesday, during a speech at the Red Bank Public Library. "You'd think maybe somebody who stood there in the beginning, virtually by herself . . .," he continued, before stopping himself. "When I say stand, she couldn't move her arms or her legs by herself at all -- I mean that figuratively. So why do I think that was an oversight?"

    Though Cheryl Miller is credited with helping bring down former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr's re-election bid in 2002 over the issue, a position that Barr has since reversed, the controversial, in-your-face tactics of the Millers have not exactly endeared them to the protocol and image-conscious political establishment. But in the 1990s, when the legalization of medical marijuana was seen largely as a backdoor, slippery slope effort to decriminalize cannabis altogether, unorthodox means were the only way the Millers could gain any attention.

    "The press wouldn't come to our house," James Miller recalled. "So she had me push her wheelchair across Seaside (Heights) to Trenton, 58 miles in 25 hours . . . that's all I had do in '93 to get television stations, radio stations and newspapers to show up. They didn't care this could save a woman's life; they didn't care if it was a medical miracle. They cared to see a dog and pony show. But I've kind of learned how to do that ever since. Give them what they need when they show up." James Miller said the power of his late wife's advocacy was inversely proportionate to the destruction of her body by the disability.

    "The worse she got, the stronger she got as an advocate," he explained. Law enforcement officers were reluctant to charge and therefore be forced to process a dying woman in so much visible agony that she needed either to lie down or be immobile in a wheelchair.

    Despite having heard it countless times, the story of the Millers still gives goose bumps to Colleen Begley, 29, of Moorestown, a volunteer with the Coalition for Medical Marijuana -- New Jersey, who is now moving on to work with Students for Sensible Drug Policy in Pennsylvania, one of a handful of states where the battle lines move next. Begley said the bill would not have passed the Legislature at this time if it were not for the work of Cheryl and James Miller, and that promise he made to his wife more than six years ago. "He's really become such a wonderful, powerful speaker. . . . He has helped us so much here in New Jersey," Begley said. "It was Jim who said, "Let's get a medical marijuana bill here in New Jersey to help people like my dying wife.'"

    Miller said he is writing a book about the fight that he and his wife waged over two decades from the Statehouse in Trenton to Capitol Hill in Washington, and even in front of the White House. Miller has been arrested more than once. He said American society developed a completely unreasonable perspective on marijuana in the 20th century, in which the drug was erroneously lumped into a category of dangerous substances in the absence of any legitimate science to support that position. Nevertheless, the stigma persists to this day.

    "To say "medical marijuana,' some, I don't know how many hundreds of thousands of times over the years, people start to kind of separate it, almost like, well, that would be OK, rather than "marijuana for the sick.' Because then, it's "Oh no, not marijuana!' "I could go to a mall, right now, and say any one of George Carlin's seven dirty words as loud as I want or say "marijuana,' and marijuana is going to get me kicked out of there quicker and get more people to look, because it's that word."

    Cheryl and Jim Miller were recipients of the Peter McWilliams Memorial Award for Outstanding Achievement in Advancing the Cause of Medical Marijuana at the 2003 National NORML Conference.

    New Jersey, News - CORZINE SIGNS LAW TO LEGALIZE MEDICAL MARIJUANA CORZINE SIGNS LAW TO LEGALIZE MEDICAL MARIJUANA | With New Jersey's endorsement of medical marijuana, there may be no stopping the rehabilitation of cannabis from illegal drug to legitimate therapy. Late yesterday, Gov. Corzine signed a law making New Jersey the fourteenth state to legalize medical pot. Four more states and the District of Columbia are expected to follow suit by year's end. Many things are driving this sea change. The federal government last year announced that it would no longer prosecute medical marijuana smokers in states where it is legal, while the National Institutes of Health has begun funding research on medicinal use in a reversal of a long-standing policy. Gallup Polls show a solid majority of Americans sympathetic to therapeutic marijuana use.

    And the usually conservative American Medical Association, along with the Philadelphia-based American College of Physicians, has joined other medical groups in calling for research and development of cannabinoid-based medicines. Lawyer Keith Stroup, who founded the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) in 1970, rejoiced: "We've had more political progress and public support in the past three years than in the previous 30. We've largely won the hearts and minds of Americans." Paul Cohen, a physician and lawyer who teaches public health law at Georgetown University, said, "I think we're pretty close to the tipping point."

    California's famously liberal medical marijuana law allows the use, possession, and cultivation of marijuana by anyone who possess a "written or oral recommendation" from their physician that he or she "would benefit from medical marijuana." In contrast, New Jersey's version requires patient identification cards and state-monitored dispensaries - easing fears that medical use will fuel illegal sales and teenage substance abuse.

    "That's the exciting thing about New Jersey," Cohen said. "Maybe people's minds will be clearer about the debate." Pennsylvania is not expected to pass a similar law anytime soon, although Rep. Mark B. Cohen (D., Phila.) last year introduced a bill in the House. Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, a Democrat from Princeton who sponsored the New Jersey legislation, thinks his bill strikes the right balance between compassion and caution.

    "I'm sure college campuses would prefer the California model," he said. "But we made New Jersey's law illness-specific. And the prescription has to be from an actual physician." New Jersey's law allows marijuana prescriptions for cancer, AIDS, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and other diseases in which patients suffer "severe chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures, or severe and persistent muscle spasms."

    Cannabis preparations have been used to relieve nausea and pain since ancient times. But over the last 15 years, research on the body's cannabinoid receptors has begun to decipher the chemistry and biology of these good effects. More recently, clinical trials have shown that these benefits outweigh the concerns about addiction, heart and respiratory diseases, cancers, and psychoses - at least, with short-term use. Many questions, however, remain to be answered, experts say. One of the biggest is whether smoked medical marijuana could be replaced by a pharmaceutical version.

    Marinol, a synthetic cannabinoid pill, is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating AIDS-related wasting and chemotherapy-related nausea. But many patients say choking down a slow-acting pill simply doesn't provide the convenient and immediate relief of inhaling pot. A new drug, Sativex, made by GW Pharmaceuticals, may renew the question. A cannabinoid-based oral spray, Sativex is approved in Canada for treating pain in multiple sclerosis and advanced cancer. The company is now completing the clinical testing needed for approval in Europe and the United States.

    "If I were an advocate of medical marijuana, and if Sativex is approved, I would then try to set up a study to show smoked marijuana is better," said Paul Cohen - who, at 75, said he has never tried pot. Last year, Cohen wrote a law review article criticizing both the government's stubborn criminalization of all marijuana use and individual states' defiant efforts to legitimize medical use.

    "Instead," Cohen wrote, "the FDA should . . . evaluate medical marijuana with the same methodology, standards, and diligence that the agency would apply to any other investigational drug." Just one problem: No pharmaceutical company or advocacy group has stepped up to do the rigorous and costly human testing that would give the FDA data to evaluate. And no one is likely to. Medical marijuana is winning the war of public sentiment, never mind the war on drugs. Stroup, 66, attributes this to generational changes.

    "My generation believed in 'Reefer Madness,' " he said, referring to the 1937 film in which high school marijuana use led to addiction, murder, suicide, and insanity. "Over the last 22 years, half of high school graduates have experimented with pot. The majority don't smoke when they get married and have kids, but they have smoked, and they know it didn't turn them into heroin addicts."

    Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.

    " Unanimous New Jersey Supreme Court Decision Affirms that Drug War Propaganda and Junk Science Provides No Basis for Child Neglect and Abuse Finding Against Pregnant Women, New Jersey Civil Child Abuse Laws Do Not Authorize State Jurisdiction Over Pregnant Women; Drug Tests Are Not Predictors of Parenting Ability

    Today, in a major victory for New Jersey’s pregnant women and families, the New Jersey Supreme Court announced a unanimous opinion in New Jersey Division of Youth & Family Services v. A.L. recognizing that the state’s child protection laws do not give the Division of Child Protection and Permanency jurisdiction or control over pregnant women and that positive drug tests on pregnant women and newborns do not alone establish neglect. The court also acknowledged the concerns of leading medical and public health organizations that application of child protection laws to the context of pregnancy can undermine maternal, fetal, and child health.

    In this case, a mother, identified in court records as “A.L.,” gave birth to a healthy baby in September of 2007. The New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency (formerly the Division of Youth and Family Services) argued that positive drug screens for cocaine on A.L. and her newborn were sufficient evidence of harm or imminent harm to find that A.L. had neglected her child. A lower court and the Appellate Division agreed, not only finding neglect in this case but also declaring that New Jersey’s neglect law could be applied to the context of pregnancy. Today the New Jersey Supreme Court rejected these claims.

    On appeal to the New Jersey Supreme Court, National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW), along with Lawrence Lustberg, Esq. of Gibbons, PC, represented a group of fifty national and international medical, public health, and child welfare organizations, experts, and advocates including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Addiction Science Research and Education Center, and the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry. Amici in this case argued that the lower courts relied on popular misconceptions about drugs, pregnant women, and child welfare that lack any foundation in evidence- based, peer-reviewed research. >> Contact: National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW), 212-255-9252, advocatesforpregnantwomen.org "

They have too be certified too give it out ! You can not just go to your family doctor and get it . Here is the link . http://www.suboxone.com . It's used for pain and addiction from opiates . Although it is a very addictive opiate and the withdrawals are way worse then heroin or any opiate pain medication ! It has narcon in it so if you take another opiate it will not work as well and make you very ill ! The narcon blocks your natural dopamine from recovering from the drug - when they tapper you off of it ! The drug there supposed to use in Subutex it's the same thing just with out the opiate blocker ! They lie too get your money - they should be tooking too court for what they do to people - And placed in jail ! They always get away with it as well ! Now the medical marijuana got passed in new jersey & they have the nerve to refuse too give it out to somebody that has muscle degeneration's / severe nerve damage / severe pain ? What the fuck is there problem's ? oh i forgot its all about making the patient suffer so bad where he goes out in the end to get the stuff off the street and go to jail ! "
