Is it Time to Legalize, Tax and Regulate Marijuana in N.J.?

Is it Time to Legalize, Tax and Regulate Marijuana in N.J.?
BY TRISH GRABER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – N.J. Senator Nicholas P. Scutari yesterday issued the following statement on the launch of a campaign by New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform – a broad-based coalition of individuals from public safety, medical, civil rights and criminal justice reform communities – to control, tax and regulate marijuana in New Jersey.

Senator Scutari is the sponsor of legislation (S1896) to regulate, tax and legalize the possession and personal use of small amounts of marijuana in New Jersey for those who are 21 years of age and older:

“The prohibition of marijuana has been problematic on a number of levels. In New Jersey, millions of dollars have been spent on enforcement, our neighborhoods have become increasingly dangerous, and the ability of countless people to get a job, go to college or buy a home have been hindered by criminal records from minor drug offenses. It is well past time New Jersey move forward with a commonsense program for regulating marijuana in this state.
