NJ: medical marijuana classes at Rutgers?

cannabisA New Jersey lawmaker who was instrumental in passage of a medical marijuana law back in January is now suggesting that the state's premier university become a national center for research into the plant and its beneficial properties.

Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer) is cooperating with Republican Gov. Chris Christie's administration to delay implementation of the law by 90 days. But even as the Assembly Budget Committee voted to release the delayed implementation to the full Assembly for a vote, Gusciora suggested his fellow legislators turn Rutgers into "a national academic leader in marijuana research and curriculum." In a news release, Gusciora said, "One such benefit could be patent rights from the development of new strains and treatments for medicinal marijuana." (NBC New York, June 24)
