The first New Jersey public question, the Marijuana Legalization Amendment, is on the ballot for this election, and has been of great concern amongst residents. The question, as it would appear on the ballot is as follows:
“Do you approve amending the Constitution to legalize a controlled form of marijuana called 'cannabis?' Only adults at least 21 years of age could use cannabis. The state commission created to oversee the state's medical cannabis program would also oversee the new, personal use cannabis market. Cannabis products would be subject to the state sales tax. If authorized by the Legislature, a municipality may pass a local ordinance to charge a local tax on cannabis products.”
A recent poll from law firm Brach Eichler’s Cannabis Law Practice found approximately 65% of respondents showed support for the ballot question.
