20 Jan: Scutari: Compassion Justifies Medical Marijuana Use

TRENTON-Senator Nicholas P. Scutari today stated that “compassion for the suffering” justifies the legalization of medical marijuana in New Jersey.

“As a prosecutor, I see the detrimental effects of recreational marijuana; however, marijuana has been shown in many cases to give people with debilitating medical conditions a chance to lead normal lives,” said Senator Scutari, D-Middlesex, Somerset and Union. “As a lawmaker, I want to see seriously ill people given every option for treatment and pain relief.”
