New Jersey Approves Medical Marijuana

Yesterday both chambers of the New Jersey legislature approved medical marijuana.
The New Jersey legislature voted Monday to make that state the 14th in the country to approve marijuana for medicinal use, pending the governor's signature. Gov. Jon Corzine, who leaves office next week, has said he would sign the bill. Two years after the bill was introduced to the legislature, the New Jersey Compassionate Medical Marijuana Act was passed by the state Assembly in a 48-14 vote. It received Senate approval just hours later in a 25-13 vote. According to the news release from the state Senate, the bill would allow doctors to give to patients with state-issued identification cards prescriptions to buy marijuana legally from registered alternative treatment centers. The identification cards would be issued by the Department of Health and Senior Services
NOW they get all progressive on us.
