New Jersey’s Chris Christie will FINALLY implement medical marijuana program [Video]
In a very surprising change-of-heart, New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie has decided to allow the Garden State’s medical marijuana program to move forward, with dispensaries open before the end of the year. Christie has roadblocked the NJ medical marijuana program again and again so this is a welcome change of heart.
“I have been struggling, as has my administration, to find a way to accomplish what I wanted to accomplish. Which is to provide compassionate treatment to those who are suffering, in a way that will not expose them, the operators of our dispensaries, the employees of the state of New Jersey to criminal liability. But that is a lot easier said than done.” Said Christie in his statement. “That is why we have taken the steps we’ve taken. Set up a regulatory system that makes this a very narrow and medically-based program that will not lead itself to the abuses we’ve seen, particularly in California and Colorado.”
