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:http://www.njsp.org/info/ucr2012/index.html - 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.

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

legalization rally

 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!

handbook

E-mail Print PDF

 It's time for a patient handbook. Keep it relevant and on point. What does any new patient need to know? Research your facts (it will be double-checked by at least two other people besides yourself). I am fond of saying "bitching without a solution is just whining". The handbook is a solution. Submit your articles directly to me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

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.
