As the debate over the legalization of marijuana continues in Trenton, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez won’t be throwing her support behind legal pot anytime soon.
Citing concerns of how legal marijuana, including edibles, will affect the state’s children and the "difficulties" it will pose for law enforcement, Suarez said she is not in favor of legalization.
"I'm more concerned with how it impacts the kids. And I think the fact that kids are seeing adults use it and they know it’s going to be legal, and they’re just like, 'It's gonna be legal, what’s the difference?'" Suarez said during an extensive interview with The Jersey Journal last month.
"I don't think they understand the consequences of it, I’m concerned about them getting into a car while they’re under the influence of it."
