Victims of chronic illnesses can now legally purchase marijuana to bring relief to their symptoms, with the opening of the state's first medical marijuana dispensary at New Jersey. The law to legalize the drug for patients with serious illnesses was a long awaited one about which medical marijuana activists have expressed mixed feelings. "We're happy some people are getting the medicine they're entitled to," said Ken Wolski, executive director of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana-New Jersey. "But I don't think getting medical marijuana out to 300 patients after three years is a success story. I think its evidence that there are major problems with the program." The implementation of New Jersey's law to legalize the drug for patients with serious illnesses was caught up in undue delays and has been expected for close to three years.
