    Hi Toad,

    The exact bill that is being considered is the Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act A804/S119. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find out much about the specifics of the bill just yet, but you can poke around New Jersey’s NORML website for more info: http://www.normlnj.org/
