April 20 is National Marijuana Day -- and marijuana enthusiasts are using the holiday to call for the legalization of the drug in the state.
Members of the group Legalize It NJ have planned a rally in support of legalization.
Activists say the bill will help patients get the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without having to go to a doctor repeatedly or having a specific diagnosis.
Opponents of legalizing marijuana say it would make pot too accessible and lead to misuse of the drug.
While a measure to legalize marijuana in the state was unsuccessful last month, Gov. Phil Murphy has said he will continue to push for the passage.
