Just how seriously does New Jersey treat marijuana possession charges?

While societal attitudes toward the possession and use of marijuana have become increasingly progressive over the last decade, neither the federal government nor various state governments have followed suit. Indeed, as we discussed last week, both the federal government and the state of New Jersey continue to classify marijuana as a schedule I drug, meaning it has no medicinal value and a high potential for abuse.

Appellate court to decide whether marijuana should be reclassified

History was made back in January 2010 when the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act was signed into law by then-Governor Jon Corzine. Since that time, the Garden State's medical marijuana program has registered well over 7,000 patients, all of whom use the drug to treat symptoms of various medical conditions from cancer to multiple sclerosis.
