WOODBRIDGE, N.J. – Sarah Drum saw the medical marijuana industry coming to New Jersey and jumped at the chance to be there from the beginning.

Her workplace, a former chain electronics store, used to be the place people came to buy televisions and DVD players. But last year, nearly 2,700 patients with glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, terminal cancer, epilepsy and many other conditions came here for relief in the form of medical marijuana.

“When I heard the industry was coming to New Jersey, it’s something I wanted to be a part of,” said Drum, production manager for Garden State Dispensary. “A whole new medical field was coming here. You feel like there’s something moral about it, being able to help introduce people to something that can help them.”I still feel like we’re definitely at the initial stages of the industry as a whole.”Drum was one of many employees working Thursday at Garden State Dispensary, which opened in November 2013. The employees were selling medical marijuana strains such as Sour Diesel and Death Star. They were cultivating clones from mother plants. After waiting days for those plants to dry, they were trimming and packaging them so they looked just right.Officials with the New Jersey dispensary and grow facility hosted several journalists from Pennsylvania last week, and the trip was billed as a preview of sorts.The team that brought the nonprofit Garden State Dispensary to New Jersey is planning an even larger medical marijuana facility in Reading at 1800 Centre Ave. [Read more at Reading Eagle]

The Spark: How Masked Musician Noise Cans Uses Cannabis to Inspire His Sound

How so? Maybe if more people in power smoked we wouldn’t even be at war. No War was definitely inspired by the current climate and state of unrest. It’s my hope that this, like cannabis, can act as an escape that people can enjoy and take a time out

Drug policy experts often say that the health risks of marijuana use are relatively minor compared to the steep costs of marijuana enforcement: expensive policing, disrupted lives, violence and even death.

Law enforcement agencies, however, have often been at the forefront of opposition to marijuana legalization. One reason is that the drug, with its pungent, long-lasting aroma, is relatively easy to detect in the course of a traffic stop or other routine interaction. It’s an ideal pretext for initiating a search that otherwise wouldn’t be justified — even if that search only turns up evidence of marijuana use and nothing more.

New data on traffic stops in Colorado and Washington underscore this point: After the states legalized pot, traffic searches declined sharply across the board. That’s according to the Open Policing Project at Stanford University, which has been analyzing public data of over 100 million traffic stops and searches since 2015.

In Colorado and Washington, traffic searches of black, Hispanic and white drivers fell significantly after legalization, according to the Open Policing Project’s analysis. That pattern didn’t hold for states where marijuana use remained illegal. [Read more at The Washington Post]
