Comments

"...half a dozen Democratic state senators tell NJ Advance Media they plan to vote "no" on any bill legalizing pot for recreational use by adults, leaving its future cloudy.

They include Sens. Joseph Vitale of Middlesex, Ronald Rice and Richard Codey of Essex, Jeff Van Drew of Cape May, Shirley Turner of Mercer and Brian Stack of Hudson County." 2/23/18

"With all of the issues we have in New Jersey, all of the things we need to get done, I don’t think the top of that list should be the need for more recreational drugs,” Van Drew said in a recent interview. “I think this is something we should slow down on.” https://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/currents_gazettes/region/van-drew-cautions-new-jersey-to-slow-down-on-legalizing/article_527896cf-670d-5316-beab-bda5140377cb.html
