ARLS WANTS YOUR OPINION: FOR or AGAINST? Medical-Marijuana Bill Passes in N.J.
A bill that would allow patients with certain types of illnesses to legally use marijuana to ease their symptoms has passed both houses of the New Jersey legislature and is headed to Gov. Jon Corzine for his expected approval.
The New York Times reported Jan. 12 that the bill would permit individuals with cancer, AIDS, ALS, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and certain other serious, chronic illnesses to obtain the drug from six planned dispensaries that will be regulated by the state.
