TRENTON, N.J. – New Jersey legislators have passed landmark bills which, if signed into law, will allow New Jerseyans to possess, buy and sell — with taxes levied — marijuana for adult use next year.

After weeks of negotiations and years of debate, the state Legislature is voting on two pieces of “enabling” legislation designed to turn New Jersey voters’ wishes to legalize marijuana into reality.

Marijuana users would be allowed to possess up to 6 ounces of weed without penalty under a decriminalization bill, while the other sets up the framework of a license and tax structure for the purchase and sale of legal weed.

The tax and licensure bill passed the Senate by a 23 to 17 vote and the Assembly by a 49 to 24 vote with six abstentions. It now heads to Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk to become law.
