handbook

E-mail Print PDF

 It's time for a patient handbook. Keep it relevant and on point. What does any new patient need to know? Research your facts (it will be double-checked by at least two other people besides yourself). I am fond of saying "bitching without a solution is just whining". The handbook is a solution. Submit your articles directly to me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

I would like a thirty page handbook ready to pass out at the NJ Cannabis Conference, Ed's event, so that gives us roughly a month.

I will not discriminate based on the writer. If you want to put something together, I will look it over and have it fact-checked. I will also leave the final editing (what to include in the handbook) up to a professional friend in the publishing business (I have more than one source). All submissions will go through the same "vetting" process for relevance, content and applicability to novice users.

Any and all websites that provide instruction or can be used as a resource should be asked if they want inclusion in the handbook - feel free to contact them, yourselves. We will keep advertising separated. Again, since this is a Coalition project, we will need to ignore illegal activity and focus on the information we want to pass on to new patients (please don't ask to advertise your illegal activity).

I know some of you feel you don't have a voice... yet, you have experience. I believe this is your chance to get heard.

skot

September 29 @ 3:00 Newton, NJ.

The summary: Skot was stabbed by his roommate, so he called 911. The cops, investigating an ADW (assault with a deadly weapon) saw medical cannabis on the coffee table. Both men were legal, card-carrying members of the state's medical cannabis program and showed their cards to the investigators. Next thing you know, there is a search warrant and Skot was arrested for possession and paraphernalia.

What happened to the ADW?

I was in attendance in May at a preliminary hearing. I will be unable to attend. Please come out and support him, if you can.

latest news January '14

Governor Chris Christie has been quoted as saying, "We don't want to be like California or Colorado."  Given the recent news, i would wager he'd like the additional income.  $1mil in sales ON THE FIRST DAY.  At 6%, that would work out to $60,000.00 for the first day's transactions.

If you are mobile and can stand the cold, the new legislative session in NJ begins on January 14th.  We would kindly request your presence in Trenton to show support for those legislators that are paving the way for the medical cannabis program in our state.  Additionally, the regular monthly meeting of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana, NJ, which will be held at the Lawrenceville Library, which is located at 2751 Brunswick Pike LawrencevilleNJ 08648.

also, this may come in handy if you're looking for the medical cannabis program in NJ, with the guidelines: NJ Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act

And, finally, an article published by the National Institute of Health: Chronic Pain in Persons With Myotonic Dystrophy and Facioscapulohumeral Dystrophy

educating law enforcement

E-mail Print PDF

 What is the state of affairs with regards to the medical cannabis laws in the state of NJ, you ask?

The governor has made the statement, speaking over the crowd of teachers, "You people... just do your jobs!"  And, here we are, doing the job of educating the police about the law.  In a recent video, our own Lefty Grimes has shown that even the municipal cops in Trenton... a few hundred feet from the statehouse... are unaware of the law.  The sargeant stated, "This is all new to me."

This is a copy of what Lefty and Charles dropped on the Trenton PD in the following video.

Of course, we had a very good turnout for the Faces of Cannabis & LoveNugget Foundation press conference on February 27th, 2014, both by the media and patients and their representatives. See the video here. We would like to thank the various news organizations that support us by reporting on our events.
