 In an on-going effort to put a face on medical patients who need cannabis, CMMNJ has decided to avail ourselves of the resources available at Princeton TV

We are in need of camera operators, production assistants, directors, editors and clerical help. If you would like to volunteer your services, more information can be had by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We have set June 24th as the date to begin this project, so the deadline is quickly approaching.

 Wow.  My small world is buzzing about this very special look at cannabis as medicine.  

You can watch all 43 minutes of this special here. Of special note, our Governor is called out for his "guidelines", the interminable wait and cost of the program here in NJ. Good luck with that damage control, Governor. We warned you that you were on the wrong side of this argument.

 On Thursday, February 20, 2014, the new chair of the Assembly Regulatory Oversight Committee invited CMMNJ to participate in a fact-finding meeting aimed at finding out what is STILL wrong with the CUMMA law and its implementation.  Asm. Reed Gusciora held the meeting to hear patient's and family member's testimony as to which improvements still need to be made to the law.  Among those who testified was the dispensaries' spokesman, Michael Weiser; Marianne Bays; attorney Anne Davis; CMMNJ Executive Director Ken Wolski; CMMNJ board member Peter Rosenfeld; patient Stephen Cuspilich; Stephanie Joynes-Pierce; written testimony by Jennie Stormes, mother of minor-child Jaxs, who has Dravet Syndrome; and a DOH spokesperson who read a prepared statement and left the room quickly after the reading was over.

Is there a name missing from that list?  There is.  Please watch the following video, where Paula Joana delivers her testimony.  Trust me when I say there wasn't a dry eye in the place.  Much credit to Mrs. Joana, who battled back her own tears and showed true courage to fight for other kids in the state in memory of her Sabina Rose.

 If you live in the state of New Jersey, undoubtedly you've heard the wonderful news: Senator Scutari is working on a legalization bill.  It is MORE important now, than ever, to contact the Senator and let him know he represents you (and, to say Thank You!).  You can call, write an email or send a letter via US Postal Service using the following link:  Find your legislator.


Nicholas P. Scutari (D)

This coincides (yes, it really is a coinicidence) with the change of CMMNJ's mission statement.  We are now pushing for full legalization, just like Colorado.  It makes perfect sense.  Why continue to battle a law that is so frought with errors, omissions and guidelines that make the program completely unworkable in our state?  Yes, there will still need to be a medical part to the law, since the people we're fighting for include children under the age of 18 (or 21, or whichever age they land on).

i have only been involved in this fight for a few years.  It's an amazing time.
