New Jersey lawmakers advanced a measure Monday to legalize cannabis after a roughly four-hour hearing that included dozens of opponents and proponents.
Lawmakers estimated that the Democrat-led joint Assembly and Senate panel heard from around 90 people, including police, ministers, health experts and former Democratic Rep. Patrick Kennedy, on marijuana legalization before a standing-room-only crowd.
If approved, the legislation would move to the floor of each chamber. A voting session is scheduled for later this month.
