Default NJ legalizes MJ

and they have expanded their list of disorders that qualify for med and I thought one of them was odd.

•inflammatory bowel disease including Crohn's disease;
•any terminal illness with a prognosis of less than 12 months;
•seizure disorders including epilepsy, intractable skeletal muscular spasticity, post-traumatic stress disorder and glaucoma qualify if traditional medicine has failed;
•Severe or chronic pain, severe nausea or vomiting and wasting syndrome caused by HIV/AIDS and cancer.

Since Murphy's announcement, these were immediately added:
•Anxiety;
•Migraines;
•Tourette's syndrome;
Chronic pain related to musculoskeletal disorders, which include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia and opioid use disorder;
•Chronic pain affecting internal organs, such as pancreatitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and neurogenic bladder and bowel dysfunction.

Opioid use is a huge problem in the NE area and was a big part of Trump's campaign (and probably the reason he was elected in many of those parts). OP was too busy bashing the president over "muh capitalism" to notice this a real-life issue.

Its not odd at all, opioid withdraws can cause physical pain. MJ is a moderate pain killer, so it makes sense.

Feels bad living in a country that has barbaric laws towards MJ and those of people smoke...

I just find it funny how thats a 'disorder' now... opiates are a disorder but in most states MJ is still a crime. Just goes to show you how backwards everything is over here.


And there just shifting you from one drug to another.

the reason he got elected is because old white people always vote republican no matter what.

Obviously i knew about the opiate problem and the huge hypocrisy how its no longer a crime now that white people are the ones dying. All trump has done so far is slash funding and write a few empty tweets out, but he hasnt done a damn thing to put a dent in it. All change is coming at state level just like the news in OP. Pharma industry pays the GOP out the ass to protect their pill mills.
