NJ Family Moves to CO for Pot

The family of an epileptic toddler is moving from New Jersey to Colorado after failing to get Chris Christie to loosen the state’s medical marijuana law. Meghan and Brian Wilson got three doctors to approve a cannabis card for their 2 ½-year-old daughter Vivian, who they say needs edible marijuana to control her life-threatening seizures. But New Jersey’s only dispensary sells smokable pot, which had to be made into food. The family petitioned for Christie to change the law to allow edibles, but he said that would be “a slippery slope.” When a generous benefactor offered to pay for $10,000 of their moving expenses, the Wilsons decided it was time to relocate to Colorado where retail marijuana sales are legal.
