The Garden State will finally come by its name honestly. With Phil Murphy becoming the state’s new governor New Jersey is primed to legalize weed within 100 days of Murphy’s start date.
Since Murphy starts his term on January 16, that means New Jersey should legalize weed right around…4/20 of course.

Going from Chris Christie to Phil Murphy is like going from Satan to Jesus–at least in weed terms. Murphy has been pushing for weed for quite some time, and now that push becomes a erality:
State Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-Gloucester, who controls which bills the 40-member Senate debate and vote on, said his goal was to get the measure passed within 100 days of the Murphy administration. [NJ.com]
The “armpit of America” will soon have a new, far more welcome stench than its Turnpike. Legal weed is coming to New Jersey–and it’s coming on hard.
