Medical marijuana in Trenton on Monday

A press conference and a peaceful demonstration are scheduled for Monday October 18 from 12:00NOON to 2:00PM. The location is the front steps of the State House in Trenton.

Potential New Jersey medical marijuana patients, their families, NJ physicians and local advocates will participate. Detailed concerns with draft regulations issued by the Department of Health and Senior Services last week will be addressed.

Senator Nicholas Scutari and Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, the sponsors of the Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act, immediately stated that the details in the regulations were outside of the legislative intent.

Senator Scutari told the Newark Star-Ledger today that he plans to repeal the rules proposed by Christie Administration.

Local advocates contend that the proposed regulations violate the law and severely interfere with patient access.

Stephen Cuspilich of Burlington County, who lives with Crohn’s Disease, plans to be at the demonstration. “I hope that they will go over the regulations to make it all more patient friendly,” he said today.
