Doomed legislation to loosen N.J.’s medical marijuana law advances
TRENTON (NJ) — Gov. Chris Christie has vowed to veto it, but Democratic lawmakers today ignored him and advanced a measure that would expand the state’s medical marijuana law so patients can go out of state for their pot.
Under the bill (A4537), which passed the Assembly 50-23 with 7 abstentions, patients from other states would also be able to buy medical marijuana in New Jersey.The bill has not yet passed the state Senate.
Lawmakers wrote the bill with the help of Meghan and Brian Wilson of Scotch Plains, whose 2 ½ year old daughter, Vivian, suffers from a drug resistant kind of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome.
The Wilsons wanted to purchase a strain of marijuana from a Colorado grower, but are unable to under New Jersey law. And even though the state has relaxed regulations to allow the edible forms of the drug that the Wilsons need, they’re not yet available at New Jersey’s three open dispensaries.
"We are tired of waiting," Brian Wilson said in an email.
