The process of legalizing marijuana has hit a roadblock now that the Murphy administration is objecting to legislation that creates the framework for selling the drug in the Garden State in 2021, sources told Patch.
Sources confirmed a Politico report that says the Murphy administration is objecting to the legal issues in the long-debated legislation, A-21, that officially legalizes personal use of marijuana, decriminalizes the substance and removes it from the Schedule I drug list.
Gov. Phil Murphy, speaking during a Monday news conference, said there are some "technical, but important things we're trying to wrinkle out" on the legislation.
Murphy said lawmakers have had good discussions with his administration and they're trying to "iron through those (differences) as efficiently as we can."
