More than one year after the legalization of recreational marijuana, New Jersey residents say the smell of weed has permeated public spaces and even their homes, according to a Stockton University Poll released today.

A majority of 57% of New Jersey adults reported smelling marijuana in public spaces often (28%) or sometimes (29%). One-third (32%) smell cannabis rarely, and only 9% said they have never smelled weed in public settings.
