New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie may be on record as opposing the re-legalization of cannabis, but the legislators in that state seem to disagree. Good for them, embracing the future and everything.
New Jersey lawmakers are planning a hearing later this month to consider legislation to legalize recreational marijuana use in the state. The judiciary committee will hear from clergy, health professionals, law enforcement officials and other policy experts on Nov. 16, Democratic state Sen. Nicholas Scutari said last Monday. “There is no question that we need to update our archaic drug laws in this country, and the majority of people support regulating, taxing and legalizing marijuana,” Scutari said.
. . .
New Jersey’s medical marijuana law is [presently] among the most restrictive in the nation, with patients and doctors required to register with the state and pay a $200 fee. There are five medical marijuana dispensaries and a sixth pending.
Scutari, who chairs the judiciary committee, sponsored a bill to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in New Jersey for people over 21. It has not advanced beyond committee [yet].
