New Jersey Goes Green! Medicinal Marijuana Bill Passes Legislature.


For what is a victory for many cancer sufferers and liberterians, the New Jersey legislature has passed a bill which will allow marijuana to be prescribed for medicinal purposes. And, Governor Corzine has announced that he will pass it before leaving office next week.

What is more shocking though is that Governor-elect Chris Christie (who is very conservative) said he supports the measure as long as it's used for the intended purpose; helping sick people.  What he opposes are loopholes in the measure, which can lead to abuses of the law.

There are over a dozen states, where medicinal marijuana is legal.  Pretty soon New Jersey will join that list.

The following states allow medicinal marijuana:  Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.
