Time to Move to Jersey! (Maybe)

Well we have another marijuana bill going through another state government this time its New Jersey (can you smell that smell?)

"I've been pleasantly surprised that the overwhelming response has been positive," said state Sen. Jim Whelan, D-Atlantic, who is sponsoring the measure with Sen. Nicholas Scutiari, D-Union, Somerset Middlesex.

The New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act would require the state Department of Health and Senior Services to issue registration cards to patients who have been diagnosed with debilitating medical conditions. They would then be allowed to keep six marijuana plants and have an ounce of marijuana in their possession.

It would also create "alternative treatment centers" that would provide marijuana to registered patients." Press of Atlantic City

Basically it would be the same deal that Southern Californians have with their dispensaries. The difference is you'll get to grow your own pot.

They voted on this bill yesterday so we should find out what happens in a few weeks. Lets hope it passes Jersey, it might be a reason to visit. I said" might" still got a chip away at that whole New Jersey sucks thing.
