Marijuana legalization is coming to New Jersey. It's just a matter of time. Assembly Concurrent Resolution 840/Senate Concurrent Resolution 183 will put legalization on the 2020 election ballot as a constitutional amendment! Hooray! As a long time member of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), Marijuana Lawyers of New Jersey™ member Allan Marain has for many years been working to advance that agenda.
New Jersey marijuana legalization will be a giant step in the right direction. Unfortunately, the legacy of this so-called war on drugs will live on. For one thing, even after New Jersey legalizes possession of marijuana and use of marijuana, weed will remain prohibited under federal law. So while possessing and sharing marijuana may become completely legal as far as New Jersey is concerned, federal thugs will continue to harass, persecute, and prosecute.
The second problem is that persons previously arrested, prosecuted, and convicted of marijuana-related offenses under New Jersey law will continue to have that stain (or, depending how you look at it, badge of honor) impede scholastic, professional, and employment opportunities. On the bright side, however, recent changes to New Jersey expungement law mandate the automatic sealing of many marijuana-related arrests, convictions, and dismissals. Another site maintained by Marijuana Lawyers in New Jersey™ provide details.
