Efforts to legalize marijuana in New Jersey are in the air.
Single-engine prop planes — hired by two separate organizations — dragged pro-weed banners through the skies Saturday over the South Jersey beaches. The banners urged state residents to vote yes Nov. 3 on a ballot measure to legalize recreational cannabis use.
Polling shows that roughly three out of five Jersey voters support the measure, which would allow marijuana sales to all adults 21 and over.
With rumblings that New Jersey legislators could vote to legalize marijuana for recreational use within the next month, interest in launching cannabis businesses in the Garden State has never been higher.
Ellie Siegel, a Philadelphia lawyer and cannabis consultant, wants to ensure that minorities and women get a chance to participate in the state’s emerging weed economy. Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York and Maryland are also weighing legalizing marijuana this year for adult use.
