The New Jersey Cannabusiness Association Statement Regarding Murphy Victory

Cory Booker’s NJCBA Phil Murphy

TRENTON, N.J., Nov. 7, 2017 /Weed Wire/ – The New Jersey CannaBusiness Association (NJCBA), the state’s leading business advocacy group for expanding access to medical cannabis and responsible adult-use of cannabis, congratulates Governor-Elect Phil Murphy in his historic victory.

“Governor-Elect Phil Murphy’s win today is a win for medical cannabis patients as well as the first step in fixing decades of failed and unjust cannabis laws,” said Scott Rudder, President of the NJCBA.

“Governor-Elect Murphy took a brave and compassionate position on cannabis legalization on the campaign trail,” added Rudder. “The New Jersey CannaBusiness Association looks forward to working with the Governor-Elect and his team, as well as the members of the legislature, in developing common sense cannabis laws that will have a positive impact on civil justice reforms as well as an opportunity to create tens of thousands of new jobs and provide a much-needed boost to our ailing economy.”

The New Jersey CannaBusiness Association’s mission is to promote jobs and growth in a sustainable and responsible cannabis industry. Starting with the pioneers in the medical cannabis market to the emerging players in the adult-use space, the NJCBA’s focus is to make certain that decision makers and regulators understand and respect the needs of the CannaBusiness community and that our community remain responsible corporate citizens. Scott Rudder is a former Republican state legislator, mayor, veteran and current government affairs executive. In addition to his government and political leadership roles, Scott led Business Development efforts for Lockheed Martin Corporation with a focus on energy systems and radar programs.
