TRENTON, N.J., June 12, 2017 /Weed Wire/ — Today, the New Jersey Office of the Drug Policy Alliance launched its racial justice focused marijuana legalization campaign with a video produced by Brave New Films.
Lawmakers from both political parties are mulling whether New Jersey should legalize marijuana, but differ over whether it should be more leniently regulated and taxed like cigarettes, or more restrictively, like alcohol.
Reed Gusciora, an assemblyman in New Jersey, wants to allow marijuana in Atlantic City, according to a June 15, 2016, article at NJ.com. Gusciora’s bill will ask lawmakers to place a question on November’s ballot, which would ask voters if people who are 21 years of age and older should be allowed to grow, sell and consume marijuana.
