N.J. legislator plants seeds for recreational marijuana legalization Democratic state Sen. Nicholas Scutari introduced the measure allowing the recreational use of marijuana on Tuesday, the same day the new session of the Democrat-led Legislature convened. Incoming Democratic governor Phil Murphy campaigned on legalizing marijuana. GOP Gov. Chris Christie is a vocal opponent. The legislation is identical to a measure introduced in the previous session that legalizes the recreational use of marijuana for those 21 and older. Scutari also introduced the bill in 2014. The legislation would permit possession of up to an ounce of marijuana, 16 ounces of a marijuana infused product in solid form, 72 ounces in liquid form, and seven grams of concentrate, but would prohibit home cultivation and consuming marijuana openly. It would also permit the licensing of commercial marijuana grow operations and retail facilities within one year of the bill’s passage.
