The great state of New Jersey is in a great state of marijuana reform.

Tuesday, a new coalition formed and announced its advocacy for marijuana legalization, taxation and general reform. It isn't an exact plea to the governor but instead a think tank of collaborators who hold major clout in the Garden State.

NEWARK — Prohibition has failed in New Jersey, and it’s time for common-sense reforms that will legalize, tax and regulate the personal use of marijuana by adults.

That was the message delivered Wednesday by New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform — a new, broad-based coalition from New Jersey’s public safety, medical, civil rights, and criminal justice reform communities — at a news conference to announce the launch of its statewide campaign to control, tax and regulate marijuana.

The coalition has the support of the ACLU, LEAP, NAACP, State Municipal Prosecutors Association, And Rutgers Medical School

In the coming year, New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform will work with allies and volunteers from across the state to build broad consensus in support of legalization from northern to southern New Jersey, across political lines, and from the public health and law enforcement communities. New Jerseyans will stand united in ending our state’s prohibition on marijuana.

"Today, we are launching this coalition because the status quo has failed, and it’s time to begin fixing our criminal justice system by ending unjust and discriminatory marijuana arrests,” said Udi Ofer, Executive Director of the ACLU of New Jersey.

Give their website a check and sign the petition... you don't have to be in New Jersey to support!

NJ has medical pot but it's one of the strictest medical states there is, NY following closely behind. It's surprising they have medical pot at all so good luck with further reform. It's easier getting opiate pills than the weed!

You never know!
