Rice Tribute: Edmund DeVeaux

By David Wildstein, March 15 2023 9:16 pm

New Jersey CannaBusiness Association (NJCBA) President Edmund DeVeaux released the following statement on the death of former State Sen. Ronald Rice:

“I first met the Senator as a budget analyst at the Office of Management and Budget, and later worked with him as special assistant to U.S. Senator Bill Bradley. While there are those who thought Senator Rice’s objections to cannabis legalization were obstructionist in nature, those of us who knew the Senator from our previous years of experience with him knew he was trying to establish the best legislative and regulatory framework possible for New Jersey’s marginalized communities. I will always remember Senator Rice as someone who negotiated from a position of strength – principled.”
