Gusciora Statement on Christie Medical Marijuana for Minors Conditional Veto

(TRENTON) – Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) released the following statement Friday on Gov. Christie’s conditional veto of legislation (A-42141) he sponsored to provide for similar requirements for minor and adult patients in medical marijuana program:

“I’m disappointed the governor has delayed giving immediate relief to sick children and has put extra burdens on parents. I’m also disappointed his conditional veto means adults – particularly senior citizens – will not have access to edible and other forms of this relief. This bill was well-thought out and should have been signed.
“Still, I am pleased to see the governor open to allowing this program to move forward, and that sick children have the prospect of getting the relief they need in the near future.”
