New Jersey Votes Tomorrow

Tomorrow, New Jersey will vote on legislation that could legalize medicinal marijuana in the state. Given the prospect of a drug czar who (hopefully) will respect this state right, this could be a tipping point. (If the bill passes in New Jersey, for example, I would not be surprised to see New York come under increasing pressure to pass similar legislation).
Call your state senator to urge him/her to support Senate Bill 119 tomorrow. (To find the number of your state senator, go to Project Vote Smart). A sample script follows:

Dear ________ (name of state senator),

I am calling to voice my support for Senate Bill 119. Cannabis has many documented medicinal properties, and as many people as possible should have the option of this form of treatment for their ailments if they need it. I hope that Senator __________________ respects patients’ right to well-being by supporting this measure to permit medicinal marijuana in the state of New Jersey.
