Today the NJ Health and Senior Services Committee voted to move S119 out of committee. The vote was 6 to 1 (there were two abstentions). The bill now moves to a vote before the state Senate. There was overwhelming testimony from many patients who described how marijuana has helped them. You can listen to the testimony below. Testimony for S119 starts about 1/4 of the way in (37 minutes).
There is still a long way to go before approval. Not only must S119 be approved by the senate, but its companion bill A804 must be approved by the Assembly.
