The attorney general of New Jersey released marijuana guidance for law enforcement on Wednesday following voter’s strong passage of a state referendum to legalize cannabis for adult use. In the statement, Attorney General Gurbir Grewal (D) said that, yes, voters approved marijuana legalization. But no, that doesn’t immediately mean that adults can use, possess or purchase “unregulated” cannabis legally. However, he recognized there may be some confusion among residents about the implications of the referendum’s passage so he said police and prosecutors “should exercise discretion” in pursuing marijuana cases.
