Gov. Phil Murphy wants legal, recreational marijuana, but that could take some time. So in the near term, Murphy signed an executive order that could expand New Jersey’s medical marijuana program.
Former NJ Gov Chris Christie dragged his feet on the no-brainer Medical Marijuana issue. Christie was OK with the state only having five marijuana dispensaries. Christie directed his NJ health department to not even approve manufacturing guidelines for edible marijuana.
From Brian Kelly: When a loved one is in pain, wasting away unable to eat, and needs this marvelous herb in order to increase their appetite, reduce the overwhelming pain, and live as as healthy and happily as they can with the time they have left, let’s have the compassion to allow them to have it.
Stop treating Medical Marijuana Patients like 2nd rate citizens & common criminals, forcing them to dangerous black market for their medicine.
Risking incarceration to obtain the medicine you need is no way to be forced to live. Support Medical Marijuana Now!
“[A] federal policy that prohibits physicians from alleviating suffering by prescribing marijuana for seriously ill patients is misguided, heavy-handed, and inhumane.” — Dr. Jerome Kassirer, “Federal Foolishness and Marijuana,” editorial, New England Journal of Medicine, January 30, 1997
“The National Nurses Society on Addictions urges the federal government to remove marijuana from the Schedule I category immediately, and make it available for physicians to prescribe. NNSA urges the American Nurses’ Association and other health care professional organizations to support patient access to this medicine.” — National Nurses Society on Addictions, May 1, 1995
Marijuana has an extremely wide acute margin of safety for use under medical supervision and cannot cause lethal reactions … — American Public Health Association
When appropriately prescribed and monitored, marijuana/cannabis can provide immeasurable benefits for the health and well-being of those in need. It’s time to exclude marijuana/cannabis from classification as a Schedule I drug.
Support the right of patients to have safe access to therapeutic marijuana/cannabis under appropriate prescriber supervision.” — American Nurses Association.
There is absolutely no denying that the vast majority of Americans support providing full, safe, legal access to Medical Marijuana Nationwide. Fear of Medical Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is unfounded. Not based on any science or fact whatsoever. So please, all prohibitionists, we beg you to give your scare tactics, “Conspiracy Theories” and “Doomsday Scenarios” over the inevitable Legalization of Medical Marijuana Nationwide a rest. Nobody is buying them anymore these days. Okay?
Furthermore, if all prohibitionists get when they look into that nice, big and shiny crystal ball of theirs, while wondering about the future of Medical Marijuana Legalization Nationwide, is horror, doom, and despair, well then I suggest they return that thing as quickly as possible and reclaim the money they shelled out for it, since it’s obviously defective.
The prohibition of marijuana has not decreased the supply nor the demand for medical marijuana at all.
Not one single iota, and it never will. Just a huge and complete waste of our tax dollars to continue criminalizing sick patients and senior citizens in pain for choosing a natural, non-toxic, relatively benign plant proven to be much safer than daily handfuls of deadly, toxic, man-made, highly addictive, narcotic pain pills and other pharmaceuticals.
If prohibitionists are going to take it upon themselves to worry about “saving us all” from ourselves, then they need to start with the drug that causes more death and destruction than every other drug in the world COMBINED, which is alcohol!
Why do prohibitionists feel the continued need to vilify and demonize marijuana when they could more wisely focus their efforts on a real, proven killer, alcohol, which again causes more destruction, violence, and death than all other drugs, COMBINED?
Prohibitionists really should get their priorities straight and or practice a little live and let live. They’ll live longer, happier, and healthier, with a lot less stress if they refrain from being bent on trying to control others through Draconian Marijuana Laws.
Nobody can deny the Medical effectiveness of Medical Marijuana.
