Cannabis Legislation Advancing

Late last week Governor Murphy and legislative leaders reached an agreement on the legalization of adult recreational use of cannabis. In the announcement Governor Murphy, Senate President Sweeney, Speaker Coughlin, Senator Scutari and Assemblywoman Quijano stated, “We're proud to announce today that we've reached an agreement on legislation providing the framework for legalization, which is a critical step in reducing racial disparities and social inequities that have long plagued our criminal justice system.” S-21 is before the Senate Judiciary on Monday and A-21 is before Assembly Appropriation on Tuesday. We anticipate the legislation will be before the full Senate and Assembly on December 17.
