NJ Advocates Claim Marijuana Legalization to Bring Millions in Revenue

Marijuana legalization and taxation could bring significant job growth and economic development

Leading advocates for the reform of marijuana laws will testify before the New Jersey Assembly Budget Committee today about the economic benefits that would result in our state from the legalization, regulation and taxation of marijuana for adults. Based on the success of legalization in four other states — Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska — New Jersey could reap similar economic benefits if it adopted similar public policies.

Two members of the coalition New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform (NJUMR) with long, well-known records of public policy work in Trenton, Bill Caruso and Lynn Nowak, will attest to the additional revenue and economic activity New Jersey could generate from legalization, independent of the benefits to civil rights, civil liberties, public policy, public safety and law enforcement.

New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform is a partnership of public safety, medical, civil rights, faith, political and criminal justice reform organizations and individuals committed to changing New Jersey’s laws to legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana for adults. NJUMR believes its time to move away from our failed approach to marijuana, and build a safe, controlled and regulated system. It works to reform New Jersey’s marijuana laws because fairness and public safety demand nothing less. Learn more at
