One month after New Jersey voters overwhelmingly approved a referendum to legalize recreational marijuana, Scott Rudder is stepping down as president of the New Jersey CannaBusiness Association to pursue other opportunities.
He will be replaced by Edmund DeVeaux, a veteran public affairs official and former aide to U.S. Senator Bill Bradley.
“Four years ago this month, we started on a journey to expand patient access to medical cannabis, fight to end cannabis prohibition, and help create a responsible, transparent, and inclusive cannabis industry in New Jersey,” Rudder said. “I am proud of what we’ve accomplished, and I am excited about where we are going.”
