NJ Bill to Allow Organ Transplants for Pot Patients
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
One of the great tragedies of medical marijuana being simultaneously legal on the state level and illegal on the federal level is the denial of organ transplants to medical pot patients by hospitals.
However, a bill seeking to right that wrong was recently approved by New Jersey’s Senate Health, Human Services, and Senior Citizens Committee by a convincing 7-2-1 tally.
The bill is sponsored by state Senators Joseph Vitale (D-19th District) and Nicholas Scutari (D-22nd District) and would properly render medicinal cannabis as the equivalent of any prescription medication in New Jersey.
Vitale, chairman of the N.J. Senate Health Committee, announced in a press release he was motivated to co-craft this bill after learning of previous patients who've suffered needlessly and even died simply because they were legal pot patients using a drug the healthcare hierarchy chooses not to accept.
The bill would “provide that a registered, qualifying patient’s authorized use of medical marijuana would be considered equivalent to using other prescribed medication rather than an illicit substance and therefore would not disqualify the person from needed medical care, such as an organ transplant.”
The bill must now be approved by both New Jersey state chambers and be signed by Gov. Chris Christie. Should it become law, the legislation could set an overdue precedent for other medical marijuana states across the U.S. follow.
