New Jersey will ask voters to legalize recreational pot

Share

New Jersey’s state Senate president says voters will be asked to decide next year if recreational use of marijuana should be legalized.

Steve Sweeney made the announcement Wednesday. The Democrat also says lawmakers will move forward with related measures that would expand the state’s medical marijuana program and expunge the criminal records of people with convictions for possessing pot.

Legalizing recreational marijuana was a campaign promise of Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, but he and Sweeney have been unable to muster enough support from fellow Democrats to pass the measure.

A measure to legalize recreational weed for those 21 and over while also allowing marijuana-related convictions to be wiped clean failed to get enough support in March.
