Medical Marijuana Incorporated Applauds the State of New Jersey for Passing the Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act

California Passes Assembly Bill 390 Which Will Pave the Way for Legal Adult Marijuana Use

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 13, 2010) - Medical Marijuana Inc (PINKSHEETS: MJNA) applauds the New Jersey State Assembly and Senate for having approved "The New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act" on Monday, January 11, 2010. A804/S119 removes state-wide penalties for possession of up to two ounces of marijuana when a New Jersey licensed Physician recommends it for one of the qualified medical conditions including Aids, Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis and Crohn's disease among others. Patients will be issued ID cards by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services and may designate a registered caregiver to assist in obtaining marijuana. Uniquely among the 14 Medical Marijuana States, New Jersey will prohibit home cultivation of marijuana.

Medical Marijuana Inc further applauds California for passing Assembly Bill AB390. The Assembly Safety Committee voted 4-3 in favor of AB390, marking the first time that State Lawmakers were forced to seriously consider replacing probation with regulation. AB390 would remove penalties for Adult Marijuana use, a ground breaking reform.
