Medical Marijuana: New Jersey Grows Prescription Pot!

300px-Flag_of_New_Jersey.png
Several days after a New Jersey lawmaker called on his fellow politicians to explain delays in prescription pot dispensary development, a report indicates that marijuana is being grown in the state.

The state's first legal cannabis crop in generations has been growing hydroponically, in a warehouse, for nearly a month, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The location of the warehouse is being kept under wraps.

But Joseph Stevens, who runs said Greenleaf Compassion Center, said that his Montclair dispensary should be operational and accepting patients in mid-September.

Another dispensary, Compassionate Care Foundation, plans on harvesting its first crop as soon as November.

Four other centers are slated to open in the Garden State, but haven't been able to secure a location, as they have hit municipal roadblocks.

Though medical marijuana has been legal in Jersey since 2010, some cities are wary of OKing dispensaries and won't grant permits, hence Assemblyman Reed Gusciora's call for a legislative hearing to explain these delays.

According to Paul Craig Roberts, a former editor of the Wall Street Journal and former assistant secretary to the treasury under Ronald Reagan, "Police in the US now rival criminals, and exceed terrorists as the greatest threat to the American public." Here is part of the testimony of Judge Alfred J Talley, given before the Senate Hearings of 1926: "It has brought the sickening slime of corruption, dishonor, and disgrace into every group of employees and officials in city, State, and Federal departments that have been charged with the enforcement of this odious law." The second biggest business during prohibition in Detroit was liquor at $215 million a year and employing about 50,000 people. Authorities were not only helpless to stop it, many were part of the problem. During one raid the state police arrested Detroit Mayor John Smith, Michigan Congressman Robert Clancy and Sheriff Edward Stein.

When these super clubs open ,and the way they are setup they are inviting crime, think fort knox of the hood where the guarded product is worth as much as gold and more than the paper the feds print on.
