Brick Township Mayor Ducey has not taken much of a stance on many issues of late, citing his political independence, but when asked last week on his “Facebook Live” session with residents about a public referendum on this year’s election ballot for the sale of marijuana in his town, Ducey ecstatically approved.
“I would love a public referendum, that would be an awesome idea,” Ducey told resident. “We would be able to do that next election…it’s something that we’re definitely looking at.”
Ducey added that he has little hope that Governor Murphy’s promise for recreational marijuana will ever pass in New Jersey.
“At this time last year, I said I don’t think recreational marijuana is ever going to be allowed in New Jersey,” Ducey Said. “So far I’m right, they keep saying they’re working on it…I don’t think it’s ever going to happen, but part of the bill is towns have a period of six months to allow the sales.”
