Lawrence Woman Makes First Medical Marijuana Buy

Susan Sturner suffers from fibromyalgia, Hepatitis C and a host of other ailments. To ease her pain, her doctor recently prescribed her with one thing that will help: medical marijuana.
Sturner drove to Montclair from Lawrence Township for her appointment at Greenleaf Compassion Center on Dec. 20. She later walked out with her first purchase of medical marijuana - with no fear of being arrested.
“I feel like I’m in a dream,” said Sturner. “I’ve waited so long for this and so many people with the Coalition with Medical Marijuana of New Jersey have worked for years ... to get here.”
Sturner is one of the few hundreds of medical marijuana patients going to the newly opened dispensary, which opened on Dec. 6 in Montclair's busy business center.
Last week, Sturner said she spent $260 on a half ounce of marijuana. In addition, she bought a vaporizer, which is very similar in the shape and style of a smokeless cigarette. Sturner said the odorless vaporizer will allow here to smoke her medical marijuana discretely and nearly anywhere.
While her ailments have persisted for years, which include arthritis and glaucoma, Sturner said she has never purchased marijuana illegally on the street. And while more potent marijuana could be purchased illegally for less, Sturner said that legally purchasing it will help bring more social acceptance to the issue.

LAMAR, Colo. — Though many of Colorado’s district attorneys have said they will no longer pursue the majority of marijuana possession charges in the wake of Amendment 64, Prowers County Mike Davidson likely won’t be able to turn a blind eye to the man arrested for carrying over 10 pounds of marijuana aboard a bus in eastern Colorado Wednesday.
The Lamar Ledger reported that a K9 search of a Greyhoud Bus in Lamar revealed that Denver resident Jason Ramirez, 35, was carrying approximately 11 pounds of marijuana in a pillow
Though he disputed that the marijuana belonged to him, Ramirez, who was wanted on two outstanding warrants, was taken into custody.
According to the Ledger, Ramirez told police he wasn’t even on the bus. Police said the passengers aboard the bus, as well as the bus driver, who was holding a ticket that bared Ramirez’s name, made statements to the contrary.
Ramirez is being charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. His bond has been set at $32,000.
