CHRISTIE SEEKING POSTPONEMENT ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA IMPLEMENTATION

Gov. Chris Christie supports the medical marijuana legislation put on the books, but wants to delay when it gets rolled out. A spokesman said on Thursday that the Governor would like the implementation pushed back to January or July 2011. The law says medical marijuana should be available by this July. Christie’s office cited ensuring the process was handled in the right way. The spokesman said Christie wants to change nothing about the law, but simply wants an extension on putting it into effect.
