EDISON - A new poll shows New Jersey residents are split on whether marijuana should be legal in the Garden State.
  
According to the Monmouth University poll released Wednesday, respondents were divided, but most agree that the drug is no worse for you than alcohol or tobacco.

Supporters of legalizing the drug say it's time for the state to move into the 21st century. "I really think that the biggest reason why we're not legalizing it is we're hanging on to old ideals, and we're not thinking forward to what are all the positives instead of hanging on to something that was made illegal in the 20s or 30s," says Kat Van Deusen.

Gov. Chris Christie has already said he will never sign a bill legalizing marijuana in New Jersey.
