On March 25, legislators were set to vote on S-2703, which would legalize the adult use of recreational cannabis. However, after it appeared that there were not enough votes to approve the bill, legislative leaders called off the vote. While no vote took place as intended, Governor Murphy continues to make a push for marijuana legalization. And, reports have the Governor setting a May deadline for a vote on recreational cannabis before he takes executive action to expand medical use.
With the recreational cannabis not going away though currently stalled, we continue our examination of the proposed legislation. In this 3rd installment of our series of posts the expungement provisions of the bill are reviewed. Please note that our review is based on the bills as currently drafted and are subject to change prior to being brought for a full vote.
