District 25 (Morris and Somerset)
Codifies certain cannabis packaging requirements; establishes offense for minor gaining access to improperly stored cannabis products.
Dunn’s proposed legislation (A5210) is designed to ensure children do not have easy access to cannabis. Under the bill, packages containing cannabis may not be designed in a way that appeals to children; certain warning labels would be required on all packages; and, the Cannabis Regulatory Commission will be required to report on the adverse effects cannabis has on children.
A New Jersey lawmaker wants to punish parents if their children raid their legal weed stash and edibles.
Assemblywoman Aura Dunn, a Morris County Republican, said criminal penalties in the form of a disorderly person offense should be levied against irresponsible parents who don’t secure their weed and cannabis stashes.
New Jersey lawmakers continued to tinker with the state’s budding marijuana laws Thursday, passing a bill that would allow police to notify the parents or legal guardians of a child under 18 who was caught with cannabis or alcohol for the first time.
State law previously barred law enforcement officers from telling parents about their child’s first offense.
