Medical pot activists ask NJ to ease access

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Parents and supporters of children with severe epilepsy and other conditions that they think marijuana would help have submitted more than 2,000 letters asking Gov. Chris Christie to ease access to medical cannabis for them.

They dropped off the letters at Christie’s office Thursday. Some of the children joined them.

Christie, who was out of town, has one week to decide whether to sign, veto or conditionally veto a bill adopted by lawmakers in June that would make it easier for children with certain medical conditions to get pot.

Christie has hinted that he won’t sign the bill as it’s written.
