Assembly Bill 4252 to Reform State Marijuana Laws Gains Support

Posted by NORML NJ on Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D) of the 15th District of the New Jersey State Legislature, and Michael Patrick Carroll (R) of the 25th District, are the Primary Sponsors for Assembly Bill 4252, the first of its kind, to decriminalize aspects of the Controlled Dangerous Substances Act. Activists from NORML NJ and Students for a Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) were in contact with Assemblyman Gusciora’s office regarding the bill. The bill has not been posted online but will be posted soon. The bill will deal with the decriminalization of possession of marijuana of 15 grams or less.
