Medical Marijuana Delay Unacceptable

Trenton -- The last thing chronically and terminally ill residents of New Jersey need is more delay in easing their suffering. They should not have to keep waiting for implementation of the Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act. It's been more than a year, and not one cannabis plant has been grown for the program.True, most of the problems have been caused by Gov. Chris Christie's overly restrictive regulations. But a plan by Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Middlesex, to force the administration to go back to square one to rewrite the regulations may wind up doing more harm than good.
Scutari is rightly concerned that the governor's proposals would bar dispensaries from making home deliveries, even for terminally ill patients, and limit the levels of the active ingredient, THC  capped at 10 percent.True enough. But Scutari has scheduled a hearing Thursday with the Democratic-controlled Senate Health Committee that could lead to a rewrite of the rules. Other Democrats said they fear the rewrite process could significantly delay the launch of the program.That would be unfortunate. Especially since Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, D-Mercer, says Christie already has made adequate changes, with the governor upping the number of facilities to grow and distribute the marijuana to six, as the law calls for.He says the amendments "encompass parts of the compromise I had reached with the governor. They're not perfect, but it's a starting point. I believe half a loaf is better than no loaf."
