The Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey
Some of you may be aware that CMMNJ has availed themselves of the studio facilities at Princeton Community TV, to produce informational programming to educate and enlighten. We started this project several months ago. A stipulation in the rules from Princeton TV is that we have six episodes ready for them to start airing. We have been sharing these videos as our own Lefty Grimes completes the editing process... but, I am happy to announce that we have six and Princeton has started airing them on their public access cable channel. Don't know where to find PrincetonTV? No worry. Here they are:
Understand, some of the images in the videos are quite graphic (children with epilepsy having seizures), but we are very proud of our efforts to educate.
Legalize Marijuana Rally
Come out on Saturday, October 18, to the NJ State House for a parade and rally to support the legalization of marijuana in NJ.
This rally will include potheads, NJ Medical Marijuana Patients, cannabis consumers, politicians, parents of sick children who need medical marijuana, and anyone against the current NJ laws on cannabis.
This is a legalization rally but will also support any progressive measures on marijuana, including a more compassionate medical marijuana program - But this rally is a demand for the Full Legalization of Marijuana.
We will ride the trains and buses to Trenton to CONFRONT Governor Christie.
The "Parade of the People" will begin at 2:00 PM at the Riverline train station. NJ Weedman will lead the march up Clinton street make left at State street and march on to the NJ statehouse, where we will join those already gathered in front of the Statehouse steps at 3:00 PM with speeches, special prayers and ingesting of our sacrament at 4:20 PM!
At 4:20 PM, we will smoke in unison across the street from the NJ State Building in a defiant act of Civil Disobedience. Those who dont want to smoke can stand across the street in support. Over 150 people did this at the 4/20 rally on Easter in front of police officers, and no one was harassed or arrested. The philosophy of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. is that with large numbers the people have the power to successfully confront the decision-makers. We plan to implement this at the state capitol. COME JOIN US!
Help us send a message to the world we in New Jersey have had enough of Christie and his Reefer Madness mentality. The national press will cover this event!

I would like a thirty page handbook ready to pass out at the NJ Cannabis Conference, Ed's event, so that gives us roughly a month.
I will not discriminate based on the writer. If you want to put something together, I will look it over and have it fact-checked. I will also leave the final editing (what to include in the handbook) up to a professional friend in the publishing business (I have more than one source). All submissions will go through the same "vetting" process for relevance, content and applicability to novice users.
Any and all websites that provide instruction or can be used as a resource should be asked if they want inclusion in the handbook - feel free to contact them, yourselves. We will keep advertising separated. Again, since this is a Coalition project, we will need to ignore illegal activity and focus on the information we want to pass on to new patients (please don't ask to advertise your illegal activity).
I know some of you feel you don't have a voice... yet, you have experience. I believe this is your chance to get heard.
September 29 @ 3:00 Newton, NJ.
The summary: Skot was stabbed by his roommate, so he called 911. The cops, investigating an ADW (assault with a deadly weapon) saw medical cannabis on the coffee table. Both men were legal, card-carrying members of the state's medical cannabis program and showed their cards to the investigators. Next thing you know, there is a search warrant and Skot was arrested for possession and paraphernalia.
What happened to the ADW?
I was in attendance in May at a preliminary hearing. I will be unable to attend. Please come out and support him, if you can.
