Quote:New Jersey Becomes Fourteenth State To Legalize Medical Marijuana Use

Trenton, NJ:
Outgoing governor Jon Corzine signed legislation on Monday making New Jersey the fourteenth state in the nation to allow for the state-authorized use of medical cannabis by qualified patients. The new law takes effect in six months.

The measure, known as the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act, authorizes patients with a physician's recommendation to possess and obtain medical cannabis from state-authorized "alternative treatment centers."

Unlike the medical marijuana laws that have been enacted in thirteen other states, authorized patients in New Jersey will not be eligible to legally grow their own cannabis.

According to a nationwide ABC News/Washington Post poll released this week, 81 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes, and 56 percent contend that a physician should be able to authorize the drug's use to "anyone they think it can help." Over 1,000 adults participated in the telephone poll, which was conducted between January 12 and January 15, 2010.
