Sen. Nicholas Scutari and Sen. Stephen Sweeney speak to the press after a bill that could legalize recreational use for adults passed committee.
North Jersey Record

Six New Jersey businesses were selected Monday to apply for state permits to grow and sell medical marijuana, which would double the number of dispensaries in the state, officials said.

Businesses in Paterson, Phillipsburg, Elizabeth, Ewing, Atlantic City and Vineland were the dispensary locations chosen, said officials at the state Health Department, which oversees the medical marijuana program. One hundred and forty-six applications were received for the six slots, including one from former New York Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer, who had eyes on a Fort Lee location.

The businesses approved to open facilities include GTI New Jersey LLC in Paterson; Verano NJ LLC in Elizabeth (cultivation site would be in Rahway); NETA NJ LLC in Phillipsburg; Justice Grown in Ewing; MPX New Jersey in Atlantic City (cultivation site would be in Galloway) and Columbia Care New Jersey in Vineland.

The businesses would join six existing medical marijuana dispensaries in the state. In June, a medical marijuana dispensary opened for business a mile away from the Secaucus Junction rail station in Secaucus. The other New Jersey dispensaries are in Montclair, Egg Harbor, Woodbridge, Cranbury and Bellmawr.

Before the businesses can be approved to grow medical marijuana, the

Nebraska Petition Seeks Medical Marijuana Ballot Measure in 2020

December 17th, 2018 by admin No comments »

Governor Ricketts did not respond to a request for comment on Monday, but has for many years maintained a position similar to that of Mr. Peterson. In a column posted online before the 2016 statehouse debate, he called marijuana “a dangerous drug” and said any form of legalization could be a slippery slope.

“We must be cautious before we follow the lead of other states,” he wrote. “Legalization of marijuana for any purpose has proven to be a risky proposition because the controls placed on its use in other states have fallen short.”

Matthew Schweich, the deputy director of the Marijuana Policy Project, which has backed the Nebraska effort, said advocates there could learn from successful medical marijuana efforts in conservative states like Utah.

“You’ve got to explain to voters that medical marijuana is a question of compassion and of allowing sick and suffering people to treat their conditions without being treated as criminals,” said Mr. Schweich, who added that his organization was considering 2020 medical marijuana campaigns in Idaho and Mississippi.

“You have to emphasize that medical marijuana is not the same thing as full legalization of marijuana” which has been passed in only 10 states, he added. “That was the top argument used against us in Utah, that it was a form of full legalization or it would lead to full legalization, and I expect that to be the main argument used by the opposition in

Greensburg medical marijuana dispensary set to open – Tribune

Updated 3 hours ago

Alexis Briggs hopes the opening of a Greensburg medical marijuana dispensary will make it easier for her to calm painful migraine headaches.

The Delmont resident travels to an Allegheny County marijuana dispensary to get the cannabis she needs — in liquid form.

“When I have used the medical cannabis, I have been able to prevent myself from having migraines … to go anywhere from 17 to 21 days with absolutely no migraine headaches, cluster headaches,” Briggs, 22, said during an open house Sunday for the new Solevo Wellness dispensary at 303 E. Pittsburgh St.

Solevo opens its Greensburg location Thursday.

The state-licensed dispensary, owned by
Keystone Integrated Care of Pittsburgh and operated by Solevo Wellness, will make it more convenient for her get cannabis to prevent the migraines, Briggs said.

Solevo Wellness’ Greensburg dispensary will surely attract people like Briggs and other qualified Westmoreland County patients. Currently, about 1,000 county residents make the trek to the Squirrel Hill dispensary for medical marijuana, said Samuel Britz, chief operating officer for Solevo Wellness of Pittsburgh.

Westmoreland County Commissioner Ted Kopas and his wife, April, the county’s planning director, said the Greensburg site will make it easier for them to get medical marijuana for their son, Alex, who suffers from autism and high anxiety.

Ted Kopas said his son has used it for four months.

Greensburg medical marijuana dispensary to hold open house Sunday – Tribune

Updated 7 hours ago

Westmoreland County residents carrying a medical marijuana card will no longer have to drive to Pittsburgh to get their legal dose of marijuana to alleviate their pain as of Dec. 20 because a dispensary is set to open in Greensburg, a company representative said.

The state-licensed marijuana dispensary owned by Keystone Integrated Care of Pittsburgh, may attract between 80-and-100 patients daily from central Westmoreland County, said Samuel Britz, chief operating officer for Solevo Wellness of Pittsburgh, the state-licensed operator of the facility at 303 E. Pittsburgh St.

Solevo is expecting that many clients because its medical marijuana dispensary on Forward Avenue in Squirrel Hill attracts more than 1,000 patients from central Westmoreland County, Britz said.

The dispensary owner and operator will hold an open house from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday to show the public the facility.

For pain suffers to be eligible for a medical marijuana card, a patient must have been diagnosed with one of 17 medical conditions. Cancer, epilepsy, Chron’s disease, multiple sclerosis and seizure disorders, autism, post traumatic stress disorder are among those diagnoses that make a patient eligible for medial marijuana.

The marijuana is distributed in the form of vapor, dry leaf, lotion and pills, Britz said. The clients see a patient care consultant before using the cannabis. The medical marijuana has cannabinoid, chemicals such as THC, primarily responsible for hallucenogenic effect of marijuana and CBD.

Medical marijuana bill would protect doctors by allowing them…

December 16th, 2018 by admin No comments »

Republican State Rep. Steve Vetter has drafted a bill with the help of the Legislative Council that would allow doctors to state the condition of a patient who may benefit from medical marijuana. He is working to get support for the proposed legislation.

“My proposed bill will change the law, so doctors will only be required to ‘state’ the condition of the patient, and they will not need to recommend a federally illegal substance,” he wrote in a Facebook post. “If the ‘stated’ condition is on the list of conditions in the (medical marijuana) law, the care provider can recommend what type of (medical marijuana) will work for a patient.”

The bill also would add three more conditions that would qualify for treatment from medical marijuana: endometriosis, interstitial cystitis and neuropathy.

As the law stands now, doctors can provide a written recommendation for medical marijuana use if the patient would benefit from the drug. The doctors don’t prescribe the marijuana, but instead patients go to a dispensary, discuss dosage and use with staff there, and are recommended a product, said Jason Wahl, director of the medical marijuana division for the North Dakota Department of Health.

For all of that to happen, a doctor must have a “bona fide” relationship with the patient — meaning, in part, the the doctor has reviewed the patient’s medical records, has completed a full assessment of the patient’s condition, the patient is under the doctor’s continued care for the condition and the relationship isn’t for the sole purpose of
