About CMM-NJ

Coalition members hold diverse opinions, but we all agree:
Arresting patients is wrong, and it must stop now.


Modern clinical research, centuries of experience and the impassioned personal accounts of thousands of real patients concur: Marijuana can alleviate symptoms of certain serious medical conditions, and it can do so when other drugs fail to help. Doctors should be free to recommend this medicine to promote health, and sick or injured New Jerseyans should be free to use it responsibly. The safety margin for therapeutic marijuana is as wide as it can be - there is no known lethal dose.

New Jersey healthcare professionals dispense potentially lethal drugs every day. We trust them to do so very carefully, and solely to benefit their patients. Common sense and compassion demand that doctors should control non-lethal marijuana medicine for those who truly need it. To make this important change a reality, your voice is needed.

 


The New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act was introduced in the State Senate in January 2005 by Senator Nicholas Scutari (D-Linden). A companion bill in the Assembly was sponsored by Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Princeton) and Assemblyman Michael Carroll (R-Morris Township).

The law passed by both houses of the Legislature in  December 2009 and was signed January 11,  2010.

 

On December 6, 2012, medical marijuana finally began to be available to patients in New Jersey who have enrolled in the state’s Medicinal Marijuana Program (MMP).  Marijuana is being sold on an appointment-only basis from Greenleaf Alternative Treatment Center (ATC) in Montclair, NJ.  Greenleaf is the only ATC in the state that is currently open.  

CMMNJ has free public meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at the Lawrence Twp. Library from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM. The library is at 2751 Brunswick Pike, Lawrence Twp., at the corner of Business Rt. 1 and Darrah Lane in Mercer County.  CMMNJ is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) public charity.

CMMNJ TV

E-mail Print PDF

 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:

Episode 1

Episode 2

Episode 3

Episode 4

Episode 5

Episode 6

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.  

If you have an idea for a future episode, please send detailed information to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
