Legal News: NJ Becomes the 13th State to Legalize Cannabis

The NJ governor, Phil Murphy, signed the new cannabis bills after both the Senate and Assembly held eleventh hour voting sessions to pass a third bill establishing civil penalties for those under 21 caught with marijuana.

The decriminalization bill signed today allows people to possess up to six ounces of marijuana without legal consequence. But the bill on underage penalties for using marijuana also bars police from stopping young people if they smell marijuana, and allows them to only give out warnings.

The bill does not allow for the purchase of cannabis through non-government approved sources as well as does not permit the consumption of cannabis in public.

For questions or concerns, please contact the attorneys at Fazzio Law Offices.
