Medical Marijuana Bill Scheduled for June 4, 2009!

The Assembly's Health and Senior Services committee just scheduled a hearing for June 4, 2009 with A804, the Assembly version  of the Compasionate Use Medical Marijuana Act, on the agenda!

The Senate has already passed their version of the bill. It's likely that the Health Committee will vote to move this out to the full Assembly. The full Assembly is likely to pass the bill and the Governor has said he will sign it. So this is a very important step to finally enacting this bill.

With all the surrounding states - NY, PA and Del - considering medical marijuana bills, I hope our state can enact ours first and be a leader instead of a follower.
