Ken Wolski runs the Coalition for Medical Marijuana of NJ.
“Our organization supports Sweeney’s effort to reintroduce marijuana legalization in the legislature in November of 2019 during the lame duck,” Mr Wolski told InsiderNJ. “We realize this legislation won’t have home cultivation in in but we support it nevertheless because of all the good legalization would do like a decrease in mass incarceration.”
Home cultivation would endow the citizens with too much liberty so we can’t have that now can we?
“Our plan to address the needs of the home cultivation adherents is to ask the legislators to introduce a separate bill in 2020 to allow home cultivation for patients enrolled in NJ’s medical cannabis program,” Wolski added.
Edward Forchion, aka NJWEEDMAN (pictured above) topped InsiderNJ’s Cannabis Power List. He is not impressed.
“This isn‘t legalization it’s corporatization,” Forchion told InsiderNJ. “It’s it was legalization, we’d be allowed to grow our own. I’m an entrepreneur but my life got ruined because I sold marijuana off an on for years. I’m selling it now. I’ve got top-self for $250/ounce.”
Crappy weed currently sells for about $500/oz in NJ’s dispensaries. That’s the real crime here.
“Why can’t people like me, people whose lives have been ruined by the war on drugs, why can’t we get into the commercial aspect of this new multi-billion dollar industry?” Forchion added.
