What’s at Stake: Why we need to legalize in New Jersey…

“The racial disparities in marijuana arrests have only grown more pronounced, and it’s urgent for us to halt the injustices of prohibition by legalizing marijuana in a way that centers racial and social justice.”

Sarah Fajardo, Policy Director, ACLU of New Jersey

“Marijuana legalization is far more than introducing a new industry in New Jersey – it is about repairing inequitable drug laws that continue to ravage Black and Brown communities.”

Richard Smith, President, NAACP New Jersey State Conference

“For far too long, cannabis has been used as an excuse to lock up Latinos. We are eager to celebrate an end to this great injustice.”

Christian Estevez, President, Latino Action Network

“Cannabis-related job growth will be a critical part of our economic recovery as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. While these may be uncertain times, one thing is absolutely certain: it’s better to create a job than deny someone their freedom for cannabis possession.”

Scott Rudder, President, New Jersey CannaBusiness Association

“Cannabis legalization is a real and significant component of impactful criminal justice reform, social justice and economic empowerment. And it’s time is now for New Jersey.”

Shaun Chapman, Director Government Relations, Weedmaps
