Compassion Associates is a patient-based, New Jersey not-for-profit organization that was formed to help “qualified” patients understand their rights and obtain medical marijuana as authorized by CUMMA. Our group will help educate the public about the status of the new law; we will inform and help “qualified” patients under the law to obtain their Medical Marijuana Registry Identification Cards and register with Alternative Treatment Centers in New Jersey; and — using our “Nobody Gets Left Out Campaign” — we will help all qualified patients under the new law, including low-income individuals, gain access to medical marijuana in New Jersey.
Our organization’s slogan is “People Helping People Feel Better” because we believe that every person is fundamentally entitled to personal happiness and comfort, and that the best way to help achieve this for all of us is to join together as a Community to support and provide compassion and comfort to those patients in need.
