These phone scripts have been specifically designed to "leave a message".  You can edit to your liking, but keep the opening and closing the same, please.  There are 4 scripts to choose from.

#1: Hi, my name is _____. I am from _____ NJ. Please support bill #_____. This bill will support _____. It will also help NJ law enforcement and our judicial system to focus on violent crime, increase public safety and crime with actual victims. This, alone, will save our state millions by significantly reducing multi-million dollar expenditures needed to enforce cannabis prohibition, which, by any objective metric, has failed. Over 50% of residents in NJ agree that arrests for cannabis must stop. Can I count on you to support bill _____? My phone number is ___-____, if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you on this very important issue.

#2: Hello, my name is _____, and I'm from _____, NJ. Please support bill# _____ . According to recent polls, almost 60% of New Jerseyans think that cannabis consumers should no longer go to jail for possessing cannabis for personal use. A criminal record for this victim-less crime can prevent people from obtaining: employment, student loans, and can have other damaging, unintended consequences on a person's life. Can I count on your support for bill# _____ ? My phone number is _____ - _____ . I look forward to hearing from you on this very important issue.

#3: Hello, my name is _____ . I am from _____ , NJ. Please vote "yes" on bill# _____ . Taking officers "off the street" to process non-violent cannabis possessions diverts them away from REAL public safety. According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports, in 2012 there ere almost 5,000 people were arrested for drug-related offences (source: - not necessary to speak this part, this is for your reference - and in case you get a call back, you can open it and read from it). That same year, it is reported that a large percentage of murders, rapes, burglaries and robberies went UNSOLVED. Please help our law enforcement officers to solve those crimes by not diverting them to the failed war on drugs. Can I count on you to support bill# _____? My phone number is ___-____. I look forward to hearing from you on this very important issue.

#4: Hello, my name is _____. I am from _____, NJ. Please support bill# _____. According to the FBI's UCR (uniform crime reports), NJ spends over $20M annually arresting non-violent cannabis consumers for personal possession. With our budget problems and vulnerable economy, this can be counted as "misplaced resources", that can be better spent on our crumbling infrastructure, schools and other budgetary needs. End the taxpayer's burden by chasing non-violent cannabis consumers. Free up our officers and the entire judicial system to focus on real public safety. Can I count on you to vote "yes" on bill# _____? My phone number is ___-____. I look forward to hearing from you on this very important issue.

Understand, DE politicians have said, in the past, that "we need phone numbers, or it doesn't count". CB Delaware realized this was a sleazy attempt to avoid the issue. Since they only have limited time, as do all state legislators, to introduce bills and get them through their system, time is a factor. This happened right before the close of the legislative year, so they had to wait almost an entire year to get recognized again. We can learn from other states and the mistakes they have made.  Thank you to our neighbors for sharing this information with us.

latest news January '14

Governor Chris Christie has been quoted as saying, "We don't want to be like California or Colorado."  Given the recent news, i would wager he'd like the additional income.  $1mil in sales ON THE FIRST DAY.  At 6%, that would work out to $60,000.00 for the first day's transactions.

If you are mobile and can stand the cold, the new legislative session in NJ begins on January 14th.  We would kindly request your presence in Trenton to show support for those legislators that are paving the way for the medical cannabis program in our state.  Additionally, the regular monthly meeting of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana, NJ, which will be held at the Lawrenceville Library, which is located at 2751 Brunswick Pike LawrencevilleNJ 08648.
