Marijuana laws in New Jersey

In 2010, the state of New Jersey legalized the use of medical marijuana for qualifying patients ages 18 years and older. More recently in 2021, after years of debate, the governor of New Jersey signed a bill legalizing the use and possession of recreational marijuana for adults ages 21 and up. Additionally, the governor decriminalized the possession and use of cannabis products for all individuals. These new laws allow people of the legal age to possess up to 6 ounces of marijuana. Given the recent legalization of recreational marijuana in this state, it is expected to take some time for recreational dispensaries to pop up around the state. However, patients with an NJ medical marijuana card can easily access natural treatments in the form of edibles, pre-rolls, flowers, tinctures, vapes, extracts, and topicals.
