The next stop for S2703 is a full floor vote in both the Senate and the Assembly. And if it passes, it will head to the desk of Gov. Murphy for signing. Murphy, who voters elected on a progressive campaign that included a massive medical cannabis program expansion and the promise of adult-use legalization, has so far wavered on his support for this particular bill. And as legal marijuana in New Jersey gets closer to becoming reality, many prominent lawmakers and advocates are still saying the language of the bill needs tweaking. Further revisions could take the approval process well into 2019—there’s only one legislative session left this year, on December 17.
