Politician Info
A+ Bonnie Watson Coleman (D - NJ) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE DECRIMINALIZE MEDICAL USE

“I’m glad to see our state’s elected leaders stepping up to address the disparities that marijuana has created in our criminal justice system with the inclusion of strong social justice components in their proposal to legalize marijuana in New Jersey, and I am especially grateful for Governor Murphy’s leadership."

"The criminalization of marijuana has done real damage to lives, families and whole communities among people of color in this country. When it comes to drug use and addiction, we have frequently and mistakenly used the criminal justice system with Black and Brown people, while seeking treatment, leniency and healthcare for White users." https://watsoncoleman.house.gov/newsroom/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=520
