Marijuana legalization stalled in New York and New Jersey as support dwindles



Just a few months ago, New York and New Jersey appeared to be on the way to legalizing recreational marijuana. Now, efforts in both states appear to be falling …

  1. If it goes legal, that means no more arresting black folks & im sure they both dont want that to happen. Thats how greasy NY & NJ is.

  2. What a joke Murphy is.. We gotta wait until 2020 election ..it will be on the ballet when u vote for the president… Doesn't matter though the black market prices are still cheaper…

  3. THANKS GUYS!!! Now I can CONTINUE to suffer with chronic fatigue and CONTINUE to not be able to do anything I used to like to do due to a brain injury while sledding! THANKS USELESS MONSTERS! 😘

  4. We need to start forums about this topic and do non violent protest how does quam and Illinois come out the blue and get approved but we been fighting for years on this topic being from NYC and now living in nj

  5. I hate new York everyone is getting weed from somewhere mine as well legalize it cause ima just go get it anyway also all you can do is take it away that's about it

  6. Political leaders in New York and New Jersey are dragging their feet on marijuana legalization issues.

  7. People who want to smoke weed are already smoking it. Let them grow it themselves so they know what they're getting.

  8. Just as I suspected a year ago…. the greedy thieving New York State politicians would be squabbling over who will get the MONEY for the next ten years!

  9. As most of you know, I volunteer with church groups to identify and cure people of the marijuana epidemic that is ravaging our great nation. There are people on this thread that have clearly fallen prey to this insidious hard core drug. With the HOAs blessing I would like to start an intervention, with the HOA approved bible of course. We will need to set up a location away from our beloved community as these interventions can become violent when an addict isn't ready to accept the lord and savior into their lives. God bless all HOA members and never give up this necessary fight.

  10. We have medicinally legal over here in pa. It’s crap, yea total garbage. It literally takes 9 weeks just for me to become a caregiver and receive my card. Taking care of my mother who’s going through cancer stuff that’s gotten really bad. The amount of hoops you have to jump through makes me violently ill. She can’t eat, sleep, or use the bathroom without pain. 4 months to receive a card that we needed 5 months ago. Had to resort to.. illegal means.

    The crime is done by our government when they restrict people from getting the medicine that they desperately need. I hope someone sues the crap out of ‘them’ for a change. Just legalize this damn plant and end the headache already. I’m no fan of cannabis myself. I personally think it’s a disgusting habit (yea, yea I down straight vodka not the point lol).

    I guess Pennsylvania will just have to wait till 2032. We will be the last state to legalize; think about it really. Too many Dutchy Amish like folk not ready to embrace change over here. I ask around, morale is low. My 2 cents on this… I have a date with a bottle. Водка помогает.

  11. Sativa would be the strain that would be like your Red Bull energy drink and Indica would be like say, your Over The Counter Excedrin PM products? Marijuana is legal medically but not recreationally in Ohio.

  12. I failed a drug test for a job n was told come back in 90DAYS! But I can go buy guns and prescription pills as I please. Why is a natural growing plant illegal

  13. Sad how people are still doing time for bud in NY and NJ. In Cali they get all the fun in the sun. Meanwhile on the east coast you go to jail for the same stuff. They can even open stores out there… NJ & NY is my home but right now they wack AF!

  14. New bill introduced to NYS Congress, looks like it will pass the Assembly and it MAY pass the senate, once the 2 or 3 senators blocking it realize that everyone else is voting for it.

  15. How much is that so called "journalist" being paid to advertise that Special K cereal over her top left shoulder (right side to us viewing) ?????

  16. somebody isn't getting their cut, or what they think should be their cut, so Nobody Gets Anything. that is the mentality of an 8 year old. Legal Weed generates HUGE Amounts of Money, ahem, 10million in tax revenue in the first month it was legal in Colorado. Huge $$

  17. Romaine Lettuce has killed more people in the last 20 years than Weed.
    CBD is a great alternative/additive to pain meds and seizure meds. (You should still stay on your RXs if your issues are uncontrollable)

  18. Legalizing it would only help stop the unjust arrests for marijuana.
    Now they will be able to continue to criminalize people that get caught with it.

  19. That because they want to keep arresting blacks they realize once they make it legal jails will not be filled

  20. Surprise surprise fighting over the money LOL. There's a giant opioid problem that law enforcement says they need more resources to combat. Seems like a no-brainer to me. But then again, when you look at who is running these states, "no-brainer" may be the whole problem. If you told the "lawmakers" that they could use the money to give themselves a raise it would be legal tomorrow.

  21. Drinking makes me extroverted smoking makes me introverted. If you want me drinking give me a gun (it's my right). If you want me smoking give me a trail and some nature to think about (inalienable rights no longer being protected)… you decide!

  22. Ok im not in N.Y. or in N.J. but 3 taxes?? We're talkin one state at three different type of taxes on marijuana what would happen if it meant legal around the whole country in a federal government decides to put a tax on it that's for taxes on one product that's almost like pain federal sales tax and cigarettes state sales tax on cigarettes and then the county in the city you live in Texas to note that don't work like that benefits Federal in a steak is a type of cigarettes can you imagine a city or county adding tax on top of that no way and yes I know New York City is different than any other City still all this tax we should not be having no debt than our government anyway with all these damn taxes I'm sorry if you make 10 billion dollars you pay taxes to the federal government and Social Security and Medicare on 10 billion dollars! If that actually happened there would be no debt ceiling!
