Legislative leaders reached an agreement on the final details of a proposed plan to legalize the commercial marijuana market. The New Jersey Globe reports that the agreement among the state’s top lawmakers calls for capping the number of commercial cultivators at 37 for the first two years and directing 70 percent of the revenue derived from sales taxes toward social justice programs. The bill will be considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee on December 14 and be sent to the floor for a vote on December 17, Sen. Scutari said. Separate legislation is also pending to remove penalties for the possession of up to six ounces and distribution of up to one ounce of marijuana.
