After months of delays, three bills are finally scheduled for hearings before the Senate and the Assembly Budget and Appropriations Committee.
On November 26, 2018, the Senate and Assembly committees will consider the bill introduced by Senators Scutari and Sweeney, S2703, to legalize adult use marijuana; and bills to revise medical marijuana laws introduced by Senators Vitale, Scutari and O’Scanlan, S10 and S2426. Identical companion bills have been introduced in the assembly as well.
Rumors about these hearings have circulated for months but were delayed as legislators negotiated final details of the bills. Maybe there are now enough votes for passage of these anticipated bills.
