Gov. Phil Murphy said he expects marijuana to be legal in New Jersey within a year during an interview with Steve Adubato on AM970 this morning.
“At worst it will be on a referendum question in November of next year,” Murphy said. “I hope like heck that we can get something done in the so-called lame duck session.”
Adubato was the guest host on “The Joe Piscopo Show” this morning.
Murphy said Republicans are misconstruing his comments at Rowan University about New Jersey not being the right state for one issue voters whose issue is the tax rate.
“The folks who making hay of are were the ones who were typically sitting on their hands when the state was being wrecked during the last administration,” Murphy said. “With all due respect, they’ve got nothing else to talk about, so they’ve picked up on this.”
