On Monday, the New Jersey state Senate passed a bill that "would allow patients with certain chronic and terminal illnesses to grow six marijuana plants or have marijuana grown for them at an authorized treatment center." So now all you folks from around the nation can stop asking me why the hell New Jersey is called "The Garden State."
The bill, proposed by Smellson's new favorite NJ state Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Linden, advanced in the Legislature for the first time by a 22-16 vote. Next, it's on to the NJ Assembly, and if the bill manages to pass into law, the noble state of New Jersey would become the 14th state to allow medical marijuana.
