Media coverage of CMMNJ/NORMLNJ press conference


By - Diane Fornbacher : CMMNJ Advisory Board

On Friday 6/4/2010, the Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey and NORML New Jersey had a press conference regarding our governor's desire to change the law and get an extension on implementing the Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act.

Our team included Anne Davis from NORMLNJ, Ken Wolski RN the Exec director of CMMNJ, Jim Miller of CMMNJ, Attorney William Buckman of NORMLNJ, CMMNJ Board member Peter Rosenfeld, Chris Goldstein from CMMNJ/ NORMLNJ/PhillyNORML along with dozens of patients and supporters. It was one of the best press conferences/rallies I have ever attended.

Here are some links to the coverage we received from the conference on the NJ Statehouse steps:

Victory will be ours and the patients will get their medicine.

Best,
Diane
