On Friday, April 23, the Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey (CMMNJ) will hold a Town Hall Meeting in Jersey City regarding New Jersey’s new medical cannabis law. Prospective patients, medical marijuana policy experts and local advocates will present updates on the law’s progress and then answer questions from the public and the media.

The New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act was signed into law on January 19, 2010 after five years of legislative consideration. Patients expect the law to be fully implemented within 2010. The NJ Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS) will have the responsibility of overseeing the safe access program.

The CMMNJ Town Hall Meeting on 4/23 will focus on the following topics:
- Who will qualify for the program as patients and caregivers.
- Operating an Alternative Treatment Center: possible regulations.
- Awareness and Education for individuals and medical professionals.

The CMMNJ Town Hall Meeting is open to the public and the press.

Media interested in attending may contact media@cmmnj.org or call 609 394 2137.
