With less than a month before Election Day, the campaign to legalize marijuana in New Jersey is finally heating up.
Gov. Phil Murphy, Sen. Nick Scutari and a panel of activists on Thursday evening joined an online panel discussing the constitutional amendment to legalize marijuana, the first of three questions on the ballot this year.
Murphy, who included marijuana legalization on his 2017 gubernatorial campaign platform, has long argued that legalizing weed is an issue of social justice.
“On Nov. 3, we are committed to making history in New Jersey to pass the legal adult use of marijuana,” Murphy said, introducing the event organized by NJ CAN 2020, the campaign urging voters to vote "yes" on marijuana legalization.
“We can’t fail, folks. We have to make sure this happens and it will transform our state.”
