Debate rages over medical use of marijuana

The Randolph Reporter

New Jersey- Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll, considered by himself and others to be among the most conservative members of the state Legislature.

Carroll said he expects to co-sponsor a bill in the Assembly to mirror one already proposed in the Senate, S2200, and sponsored by Sen. Nicholas P. Scutari, D-Union.

The bill would allow the state Department of Health and Senior Services to give registration cards to patients whose doctors say they need the marijuana. The bill would allow patients or caretakers to have up to six plants or one ounce of marijuana.

Acting Gov. Richard Codey has said he opposes the bill but Scutari said he spoke with Codey and that Codey is willing to further discuss the proposal.

This is a very nice article with a lot of good information.
