New Jersey lawmakers pass medical marijuana law

New Jersey will likely become the 14th state to decriminalize marijuana for medicinal use following votes in the state Assembly and Senate. The Assembly voted 48-14 to pass the “Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana” bill and several hours later, the state Senate voted 25-13 to approve the bill. Gov. Jon Corzine has said he will sign the bill and is expected to do so before leaving office on Jan. 19. The votes were a major victory for medical marijuana advocates, who crowded voting chambers in support of the bill. If Corzine signs the bill, the law is expected to take effect in about six months, meaning the state could see it’s first medical marijuana dispensaries open this year.
