Medical Marijuana Q and A

By Jim Hooker

The Department of Health and Senior Services announcement that it had selected the six operators of the new medical marijuana dispensaries may inevitably leave some residents in the towns where they’re planned with the jitters.  Others among the sick who want the dispensaries are arguing they are too far apart.  The Health Department’s legal counsel, Devon Graf, responds to these and other issues of concern.

    New Jersey is just another state that has abandoned the “War on Drugs”. Legalizing marijuana for any reason is just another method of providing political insiders vast riches at the expense of the public. It is not surprising that former Governor Christie Whitman’s brother will be one of the distributors of this drug. My grandfather was paralyzed & speechless for 24 years, an uncle suffered from Multiple Sclerosis for 28 years. Several family members, including two brothers died of cancer. There are plenty of pain remedies available without resorting to this mind altering drug. As witnessed in other states who have legalized “pot”, one simply needs to go to a friendly doctor who will easily write a prescription for this drug. Result of this program? We will have a “POTHEAD” on every corner! Think using cell phones while driving is dangerous? Imagine a driver on cloud nine behind the wheel. Thanks, Legislators. R.I.P., New Jersey!
