New Jersey statute authorizes two treatment centers in each of three regions in the State. The first 6 centers that gain approval must be operated as non-profits. However, any subsequent centers could be for-profits. Senator Singer was seeking clarity from the state Attorney General to assure growers, operators and program administrators are not in conflict with federal law.“Federal Department of Justice raids are continuing in medical marijuana states and carry profound consequences,” Singer said. “President Obama has proven he is serious about breaking his initial promise to respect state medical marijuana laws. Does this mean New Jersey must stop implementing our medical marijuana program?”
.“Ironically, some Democrats have baselessly criticized the Christie Administration for allegedly delaying medical marijuana implementation in New Jersey, when the President is thwarting states from providing this medicine to those with chronic illnesses,” the Senator continued. “As Gov. Christie has said, we must assure that New Jersey’s medical marijuana enterprises are narrowly focused on operating for medical purposes only.”
If Senator Singer'sconcern is that medical marijuan be available for chronically ill patients, why is his primary concern primarily for profit based dispensaries, especially when the first dispensaries must be non profit.once again Senator Singer openly showing his concerns are first for his special interests.
