State of New Jersey and the NJ Senate: Give NJ Medical Marijuana Patients the right to grow.

      Wanaque, NJ

I am a veteran and a NJ medical marijuana patient. I suffer from horrible pain and muscles spasms related to injuries I sustained to my lower spine during my service. For many years I have hidden that simple fact because I was afraid of consequences for me and my wife. In October of 2012 I received my medical marijuana card from NJ health department and hoped that my wife and I would no longer have to fear the consequences of me using my medication. I was however disappointed when I found out the dispensary was going charge $500-$600 per ounce. I am a full-time Electrical Engineering student currently in my junior year at NJIT and I cannot afford $1,000 - $1,200 a month for medicine that is not covered by any insurance.I have always tried my best to better myself and contribute to the world, but without my medicine I will wither away.

Let’s get compassion back into our law. Letting the patients grow will causes prices to fall for all patients and decrease the current backlog that exist. It will give low income patients a path to securing medicine and send a message to dispensaries that they cannot continue to price gouge patients. Tell NJ legislators to stop making criminals from the sick and dying.

Please, I beg you to help not only me, but all the other sick and dying people in NJ.

      The fact that cannabis is illegal in the first place is ludicrous (given the current information and the historical reasons for it's severe stigmatism.... Every day it seems that more and more evidence appears in favor of cannabis..... Ridiculouso!!!!!! It can help to alleviate pain, it can potentially interrupt apoptosis, it can potentially coat the neurotransmitters (thus lessening seizures!!!!), et cetera, et cetera, et cetera!!!
