by Chris Goldstein 11/23/10 - The New Jersey Assembly sent a strong message to the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) that the new limitations on the medical marijuana program are outside the compassionate use law’s intent. Resolution ACR 151 was passed yesterday 48-22-7.
Although voting was also expected in the state Senate sponsor Nicholas Scutari grudgingly removed the concurrent resolution at the last minute. Some supporting Senators were absent for the session and he wanted to be sure of the best chance for passage. SCR 130 may now see floor voting on December 9, 2010.
