Medical Pot Activists Asking NJ To Ease Access

Advocates for medical marijuana are planning to make a direct appeal to Gov. Chris Christie to sign a bill that would ease access to the drug for children with certain medical conditions.

The Legislature passed the measure in June. Christie has said he is concerned about children who could benefit from medical marijuana but has hinted he may not sign the law as it is.

A group of activists plan to hand deliver thousands of letters to support to Christie’s office Thursday.

The bill would eliminate the need for written consent from a pediatrician and psychiatrist to be eligible. It also would allow legal dispensaries to produce pot in an edible form.

New Jersey adopted the law to allow medical marijuana in 2010.
