For seven years, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has gone out of his way to keep marijuana out of the hands of his constituents. The newly appointed “opiate czar” continually blocked expansion of his state’s medical marijuana program, going as far as recently calling cannabis reform a democratic plot to poison children. (Not. Even. Kidding.)
With support for legalization at 60 percent nationwide, it’s been reported that New Jersey’s next governor will almost certainly legalize pot. In fact, just last week, the chair of New Jersey’s Senate Judiciary Committee, state Senator Nicholas Scutari, introduced a bill aimed at establishing a taxed and regulated cannabis industry throughout the Garden State.
From what we can tell, New Jersey’s pot laws are ready to change—just as soon as Christie gets out of the way.
To give us all the dirty details on the drama, High Times Senior Cultivation Editor Danny Danko recently went on Cheddar TV to discuss why Chris Christie hates weed so much, how legalization could be right around the corner and what that would mean for New Jersey.
