N.J. Advocates threaten legal action if Governor delays issuing regulations

Another article on the status of medical marijuana in New Jersey. Exciting for litigators.

TRENTON — Legal and medical marijuana advocates say they are gearing
up for a court fight if the Legislature relents and gives Gov. Chris
Christie the potentially year-long delay he wants before making the
drug legally available to chronically ill patients.

The New Jersey chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of
Marijuana Laws is “ready to fight the state of New Jersey,” said Anne
Davis, executive director and attorney from Brick. She spoke to a
gathering of about 40 protesters and journalists outside the
Statehouse today. “We will not accept any delay.”
