Apparently there’s a deal to legalize cannabis in NJ.
Senate President Steve Sweeney told an audience at Monmouth University that a vote is imminent.
“Our goal is March 25th,” Sweeney said.
If true, NJ would become the second state (after Vermont) to legalize cannabis legislatively. Ten states + DC have ended cannabis prohibition at the ballot box.
If NJ’s gambit works out, the Garden State would be the second legal state (after Washington) banning home cultivation. That’s an inauspicious distinction that reflects NJ’s overall tendency to empower the government at the expense of its citizenry.
