History of marijuana legalization in New Jersey
In New Jersey, only medical cannabis is legal yet. Though Governor Philip D. Murphy along with other Democrats tried several times to regulate recreational cannabis, they failed to gather enough support to pass the bill.
On his final day in office on Jan. 18, 2010, New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine signed Senate Bill 119 into law. Known as the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act (CUMMA), the new law created New Jersey’s medicinal marijuana program (MMP), permitting the use of medicinal cannabis to treat certain debilitating medical conditions set forth in the provisions of CUMMA.
