Legal weed in New Jersey not a slam dunk for Gov. Murphy and Democrats



Democratic Gov.-elect Phil Murphy’s plan to legalize marijuana for recreational use in New Jersey is running into opposition from lawmakers in his own party. A half dozen Democratic senators…

  1. The way people raseid these people holy shit there so stupid why can't it be legal if were one nation under god

  2. End of the day senators after a hard day working to say no to legalization of weed they have a smoking session at doors close lol 😂

  3. They are all such sneaky liars. They give excuses like, oh there are bigger issues, or we should improve education, etc. How about doing them all?? They act like its a choice. Education or legal weed? And the public doesn't think to say BOTH! Its like the old argument that the anti-science crowd puts out like, if we didn't give money to NASA, we could feed the all the homeless people. True but guess what? We could feed all the homeless people and still increase NASA's budget 3x! We're the wealthiest nation on Earth. Notice how they never use the military. 700 billion goddamn dollars a year bombing strangers on the other side of the planet. Talk about a waste of money. Its never a choice between that and weed, or education, or science. I'm so sick of all these liars.

  4. Those are the people that want to see young black boys go to jail the no’ers smh

  5. I don't know if Trump will even approve legalizing marijuana even for recreational purpose. A lot of scientific studies confirmed that even Marijuana's chemical components used for medicinal purpose can destroy the sanity of humanity and can cause brain damage too. That's the reason why Marijuana has been illegal in many countries.

  6. the so-called universal healthcare is not working at all and has taken soo much money from other legitimate gov programs its not even funny, social security being one of those programs, legalization of marijuana i love this one because democrats are stupid on this FDR your precious liberal criminalized pot and you savior that is Obama and Clinton both promised a national legalization both didnt do it, enviromental protection has made trillions of dollars without 1 prediction being close to true the earth has been cooling for over 5 years, minimum wage went from $5.15/hour to $7.25/hour , meanwhile the price of everything and i mean EVERYTHING has at least doubled mostly tripled or more, and Finally, gay marriage is a flimsy thing considering marriage is a religious ceremony while churches being sued for not wanting to do them while the belief of christianity adamantly opposes this as in the words of God in Leviticus "Homosexuality is an abomination." there are many other reasons for these but i think you should at least research shit for yourself……https://www.countable.us/articles/849-date-fdr-made-marijuana-illegal-80-years-ago heres a start

  7. Let the People DECIDE!!!not people, who do not live and pay taxes, or health care, or commute with in NJ!!!
    TIMES UP

  8. Also medicaid shouldn't pay for minors of home owners rehab as well, if they can't get financial aide for college

  9. Alcohol needs to go too since it was mentioned!! I'm sorry, but the drunk driver has killed 20 I have known!
    Not one from marijuana! 17 kids have been orphaned from drunk driving

  10. Should sell to the nj residents from the dispensaries, while they figure out if they're going to sell to out of towners

  11. Where are the reasons for this though ? They haven't explain anything at all LOL. Just a solid no.

  12. God created weed,man made alcohol..weed is awesome,just dont walk around stoned out of your mind all day everyday,use it as needed.

  13. If the senators don't vote representing their constituents, then vote these antiquated thinking senators out. It's time for some new blood. Those boys grew up in the 50's and early 60's when weed was thought to be the devil's lettuce. Yet they can drink scotch (yes it is a drug)and smoke cigars (yes it is a drug) in the comfort of their own homes and don't have to go to a shady back alley to get their life lubricant of choice.

    MORE THAN 60% OF NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS ARE IN FAVOR OF LEGALIZING RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA.

    IF OUR POLITICIANS DONT GIVE US LEGAL CANNABIS VOTE THEM OUT.

  14. Haha you thought your beloved savior Murphy was going to make it rain joints in NJ? Did you really think when he was saying "I'll have your back" that he was talking to you?

    Thankfully, I'm safely outside your state's borders, sipping a whiskey spiked coffee, reorganizing all the "evil assault weapons" in my safe. You folks enjoy your donkey toothed governor. I'm just glad I don't have to live under his policies. Cheers.

  15. i say no but the hearing is not for my no vote but educating the public…rat meat for boneless chicken

  16. so you think its smart to take a working mans life away for a joint? But a alcoholic can pull up at any bar and become impaired 10 times more then any rec cannabis could. Its 2018 wake up

  17. I dont know why but these guys enrage me and makes me more harmfuL than so called drugs…these idiots dont cant even classify things for what they are. they need to take their mediocre old fashion ways and get out those seats. that essex county guy needs to focus on cleaning up essex county its a big problem because when anyone enters ewr and see how crappy and dirty that county is it gives the whole state a bad look… "DIRTY JERSEY" the garbage is far more harmful than anything else… leave the happy flowering loving cannabis alone LEGALIZE THANK YOU PHIL MURPHY

  18. Jersey has s huge heroin, OxyContin problem. I wonder how kids are getting hooked on it? 🤔 god forbid we allow legalized weed. Fire these idiot senate and politicians.

  19. I am baffled that no one sees the health benefits and economic benefits that cannbis can bring to the table. These are the people that are scared of change even though the majority of people want marijuana to be legal in NJ and the other states. You let alcohol be legal even though it ruins lives and can easily be abused same goals with tobacco and opioids. My point is our government wants to kill us with all these drugs for profit they don’t care about citizens at all.

  20. They literally have no valid reason to not legalize it. Their claims were, it's not that big of an issue, it's still an issue so we shouldn't just ignore it, and it's a drug and we shouldn't legalize it, this is bullshit, there are other drugs that are legal and very harmful and weed is completely harmless. There are absolutely zero cases of people dying from weed but the death rate from alcohol is over 80,000 people per year. These people are supposed to represent the population of New Jersey when they are clearly representing no one but themselves. How can you call this a democracy if no one really has a say? Democracy literally means a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives. So why is an issue that is clearly favored by a majority of the population not being solved? Innocent people who are just having a good time shouldn't be punished. The only reason it became illegal in the first place was so that the government could have an excuse to search and deport Mexicans.

  21. That big pharma $$

    "Of all the big problems facing NJ I don't think recreational marijuana is one of them." Good to know your stance on mass incarceration and racial discrimination isn't a priority. Vote these corporatists out so Murphy can do what he promised to

  22. fire them all. u rather a man made "drug" as cigs or even Alcohol, but something the earth can make itself and its illegal. jersey is 1 state that needs money but no just keep taxing the people that live in the state. make them suffer more. nvr proactive. shameful. no surprise that more and more people wanna leave the state

  23. Political Corruption.

    Either way people are going to smoke marijuana if they like despite these idiots and the political bias nonsense. They don’t “represent” the people. They represent themselves. Because representing the people is an entirely different outcome. If a tax paying adult wants to smoke weed at home after a hard day at work, they will continue to do so. We don’t need their “approval.” We’re not children.

    Just goes to show, corruption and politics, nothing will ever change. 👎🏻
