Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) is convening a press conference right now announcing a separation of the medical marijuana bill, according to Dan Munoz of NJBIZ.
Sweeney says the votes aren’t there for adult-use legalization.
He wants to put it on referendum for 2020.
“Sen. Sweeney announces the state will move ahead with the medical marijuana bill by itself, following pressure yesterday from GOP lawmakers.”
“We will move forward with the expansion of our medical cannabis program as well as the progressive social justice reforms in the expungement legislation. We will not, however, pursue the legalization of adult use marijuana at this time.”
