Gov. Jon Corzine Plans To Sign Medical Marijuana, Other Bills

Economic AssistanceNew Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine was spending his last full day in office mulling scores of bills that await his signature. Corzine today was working out of his Newark office while the governor’s Statehouse office in Trenton is readied for his successor. He will be signing bills privately throughout the day. He has no public schedule. Among the items on Corzine’s desk is legislation giving chronically ill patients legal access to marijuana. If Corzine signs the measure, New Jersey would become the 14th state to¬†allow medical marijuana.

He’s also considering several clemency requests.

Gov.-elect Chris Christie is scheduled to be sworn in at noon Tuesday. AP
