New Jersey Assemblyman Gusciora on Legislation Invalidating Gov. Christie's Medicinal Marijuana

New Jersey Assemblyman Gusciora on Legislation Invalidating Gov. Christie's Medicinal Marijuana

In this video press release, Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer), a vocal advocate for medicinal marijuana use, discusses his legislation contesting Gov. Christie's draft regulations for implanting the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act.

Gusciora's legislation (ACR-151) formally declares draft regulations created by the Christie administration as being inconsistent with the legislative intent behind the compassionate use law.

Gusciora's measure, a legislative resolution that does not require the governor's signature, passed the Assembly Monday by a vote of 48-22-7.

The measure would give the commissioner of the state Department of Health and Senior Services 30 days to revise or withdraw the proposed rules for implementing the Compassionate Use Act.

If the administration does not comply, the Legislature may hold public hearings to discuss invalidating the proposed rules and may subsequently adopt a second resolution invalidating the proposed regulations.
