Marijuana legalization vote set for Monday
After months of deliberation, the legality of recreational marijuana use is set for legislative vote on Monday.
In the bill, so-called low-level pot convictions would be expunged.
New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker took to Twitter, saying that the bill has strong measures to reverse the damage of the War on Drugs.
NJ Advance Media reports that Comedian Whoopi Goldberg, of West Orange, called several female lawmakers, who are either on-the-fence or against legal pot, to encourage them to vote in favor of the bill.
Goldberg is widely known as long proponent of the legalization of marijuana and founded a cannabis company in 2016.
