Earlier this month, new legislation was introduced formally, which would legalize recreational marijuana and expand the medical cannabis program. The legalization of marijuana and the revenue it brings in is a big part of Gov. Murphy’s other plans, and this is reflected in his 2019 fiscal budget, which is accounting for $60 million in revenues. The legislation would allow people 21 and over to possess, buy, use, or transport an ounce or less of marijuana, less than other states with legalization on the books. Any health-care practitioner permitted to prescribe controlled substances would be allowed to write prescriptions.
