MEDICAL = YES, WITH RESTRICTIONS.
RECREATIONAL = NOW, NO! BUT COMING SOON IN 2018, MAYBE.
Medical marijuana has been legal in New Jersey since 2010 – with restrictions.
Recreational marijuana is not (yet) legal in New Jersey. And offenders who possess or distribute marijuana are dealt with harshly. But that could all change when New Jersey undergoes a regime change from the Christie Dynasty to whatever is coming next.
It is important to know the differences and the laws, because the difference could lead to arrest and conviction for possession or distribution of marijuana – which could lead to years to decades of prison time, harsh fines and a permanent criminal record.
And if you’re in the slammer when the rules (possibly) change a couple of months from now, you’ll miss out on all the legal fun.
