Democrats Gusciora, Voss on 'New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act' (A-804) they introduced and passed yesterday

Gusciora, Voss on 'New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act' (A-804)

In this video press release, Assembly members Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer) and Dr. Joan M. Voss (D-Bergen) discuss their legislation to make access to marijuana legal for patients suffering from terminal or debilitating illnesses.

Under the "New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act" (A-804), a patient diagnosed by their doctor as having a certain type of debilitating medical condition - such as cancer, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, seizures, muscle spasms and multiple sclerosis - would able to receive a maximum of two ounces of medical marijuana per month through a state registry system, with approval from a physician.

And news from Chris Goldstein via Russ at NORML, is that the bill has also passed through the Senate and now awaits Governor Corzine's signature!


  1. this is not a step forwards, this is a step backwards.
    controlling marijuana is not something that we as a nation want to see.  yet again this is just an example of laws made by people that have never smoked greens before in their lives.  why restrict something so glorious that grows so freely from the ground and has less harmful effects than any other drug out there, namely alcohol which is wildly abundant and detrimental to the user, their family, friends, and society. 
    how obnoxious - "it makes your last days better;" no, it makes your every day better.
    california abuses prescriptions?  no, california is laughing at every other state in the nation because it's masquerade of "medical marijuana" is just getting it out there for those who are crafty and want to smoke it without getting hassled by police and other idiot members of society.
    i'm not pleased, and those who see this as a victory are blind.  we don't want control.  we want FREEDOM.  our constitution was written on hemp paper, not petroleum paper.. or bullshit paper for that matter.

  2. Respectfully I think you are wrong. It's a great victory for patients in New Jersey. I agree with wanting and fighting for all the things you have noted. I agree that the politicians talk is BS. I support 100% the right to grow your own for medical and personal use with no taxation or govt interference. I think it's something that needs to be pushed on every state with a ballot initiative. The people have shown they understand and will vote for this. This is why I really have issues with the MPP Ballot initiatives like in Nevada 2012. But not on this one. When it comes through the govt. especially on the East Coast a stones throw from NYC? Get it passed, it's the only way. I'm for freedom and 100% aware of what you speak, support it, for freedom all the way, but sometimes you have to be a small bit pragmatic. Better to lose or help many people?

    This is a good thing to happen in New Jersey. Who would have expected it through the state house? Not me.
