Dear Governor Christie--

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana--New Jersey, Inc., I urge you to support H.R. 2835, the “Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act.” This federal legislation will provide important legal protection for patients who use medical marijuana in compliance with state laws.

For more information, please see the enclosed Op-Ed, “New Jersey must protect medical marijuana patients” that was published in the September 12, 2010 edition of The Times of Trenton, NJ.

The enclosed 10-minute DVD from Americans for Safe Access entitled, “Medical Cannabis in California; A report from the frontline” also gives an important update on the issue.

As Senator Nicholas Scutari, the prime sponsor of the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act has said, “We need to be sure that New Jerseyans who comply with our medical marijuana law are not at risk of being harassed, arrested or prosecuted by federal law enforcement officials.”

Thank you for your anticipated support of this bill and thank you for efforts to protect medical marijuana patients who are suffering from debilitating illnesses.

Sincerely yours,

Ken Wolski, RN, MPA
Executive Director
Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey, Inc.
219 Woodside Ave.
