This would finally give meaning to "The Garden State" [Medical Marijuana]

Many thanks once again to our friend the Sexy Armpit.

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.

The article also includes a list of states I plan to move to at the end of my lease that allow medical marijuana. Move over, Montana, the Garden State is sewing the seeds for a glorious harvest! New Jerseyans, the future looks bright. Pretty soon you won't have to feel ashamed when the first thing your visitors notice upon leaving Newark Aiport is that funky smell on the Turnpike.
