I just wish people would stop asking logical questions related to how this cannabis decriminalization / sales process will work. All you need to know is that everyone in Oregon, California and Colorado are very happy with their laws and that these types of illegitimate obstructionist questions are only delaying the will of the people. And yes... cannabis users will become a protected class because of the taxes they will be paying.

Traditionally in Jersey City planning and zoning boards will suggest that property and business owners visit the neighborhood associations to iron out any concerns. Often cafe/restaurant owners will make nice and bring free baked goods or the like to these meetings. I wonder how this will now play out.....

Steven Fulop@StevenFulop

I’m a supporter of legalization of marijuana + in next few weeks our planning dept is going to clean up JC zoning laws so that we can get ahead of where we’ll allow/not allow dispensaries, grow facilities etc. we want our zoning to be clear w/community input + to avoid lawsuits

With the marijuana legalization debate set to heat up this year in New Jersey, leaders in two of the state's highest-profile towns say they have no problem with weed businesses in their cities.

Should state lawmakers legalize pot, count Jersey City and Asbury Park among those likely to be a part of what could eventually be a billion-dollar industry.

A bill to legalize recreational marijuana lets municipalities to decide if they want to allow pot sales and production, or miss out on millions in tax revenue.

On Wednesday, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted that he and city officials would be working with the public to "clean up" zoning laws to clarify where dispensaries and grow facilities would be allowed to operate.

That might actually be happening.

Congressmen and governors, from both parties, are furious over Sessions' plans to enforce federal marijuana laws. Some are upset over the claim that it violates federalist principles; some because they want to protect a nascent industry that is generating billions in state tax revenues.

There are stocks and ETFs for marijuana companies, which obviously took a bit of a hit. Even stocks for legitimate businesses (like Scotts, which makes fertilizer) dropped after Sessions' announcement.

While I don't think it will happen any time soon, it seems to me that federal legalization is inevitable. It's already getting too big and too popular to stop.

This place? You mean the USA? I'm from the UK and lived in Hong Kong for three years before moving here - political discourse is awful globally.

I personally believe that social media and the modern news cycles have pushed both sides - left and right - into a state of constant panic. People don't act friendly or think rationally when they're scared.

Also people act like dicks on the Internet, anyways. That same person who wrote that vile message is probably quite friendly and tolerating of your views in the flesh.

K, I've always respected your opinions but this last comment from you just leaves me scratching my head. Guns are the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.

Thanks,


I am pretty sure K_Lo2 was being sarcastic, in agreement with the sentiment expressed by Brewster in his comment. I find both posts to be lazy criticism, as it is clear that not EVERYTHING is up to states to regulate. But, I also think that most of these discussions are moot, as most people have made up their minds one way or the other and are unlikely to be swayed. Clearly, conservatives agree that some matters are the purview of the federal government.

Wonder if this will slow down progress toward legal weed before it even starts.

Jersey City needs to take advantage of this and set it up to bring in the tourist from NYC and the burbs that would flock to something like that before NYC speeds the process up to do the same once they see how successful it is and how much money they are losing out on.


So no one for a Cannabis Row in JSQ with entertainment? Lol


LOL it seems like you are on to something! It could be called .... Xanadu!

This litterally made me laugh out loud.

I read that California expects to raise $1 BILLION in tax revenue due to marijuana sales. if nj legalized and taxed it, it could use extra revenue to fund underfunded pensions, etc....although I wonder if many public employees wouldn't be better off in 401k type plan as they would be able to leave money to heirs

No.


WeedMan wants out of jail because...

" He's further concerned that the bill makes no mention of job protection for those who may be drug tested by employers and test positive for marijuana."

WTF... why does my boss at the local 3P Contract Amazon Distro Center want to mess with my buzz?
