Companion bills A21 / S21 would allow adults 21 and older to legally possess and purchase up to one ounce of marijuana.
While other results of the election remain hazy, the clear winner on November 3 was marijuana.
New Jersey voters have overwhelmingly decided in favor of Question 1, which calls for amending the state constitution in a manner that accommodates for the adult-use possession, production, and sale of marijuana to those age 21 or older.
Voters in five states: Arizona, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota will decide this Election Day on state wide ballot initiatives to legalize marijuana for either adult-use or medical purposes. According to the latest available polls, each of these measures currently holds a lead among voters.
It is a good time to be alive if you are a marijuana smoker and it’s only going to get better!
Question 1 appears on the back of the ballot. So, as we turn the page on marijuana prohibition this November, please remember to (quite literally) turn the page on your mail-in ballot!
Seventy-two percent of Democrats, 65 percent of Independents, and 56 percent of Republicans expressed support for the ballot question in the latest poll. Overall, only 29 percent of New Jerseyans opposed the measure.
