New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and state officials have purposefully dragged their feet and botched the handling of the state’s medical marijuana program in an attempt to sabotage it.
That’s the argument being heard today in state appeals court in a lawsuit filed by medical marijuana patient Richard Caporusso, according to NJ.com.

​Californians have a chance to make two strides for human rights in the coming weeks. Two important bills before the Legislature must be voted on this month: SB 129 would grant employment rights to medical marijuana patients, and AB 1017 would reduce penalties for marijuana cultivation.

The Legislature will be voting on the bills in the next two weeks (between January 19 and 31). Both bills fell short of passage last legislative session, and both are in critical need of support fro constituents in key districts.

“We are urging supporters in key districts to contact their legislators ASAP!” said Deputy Director Ellen Komp of California NORML.
