  1. how silly a governmet that doesnt help the homeless off the street to "take are of you " by prohibiting an herb that has proven medicinal value , instead they let you use "painkillers" that can literally RUIN your life but get you hooked spending all you got, talk about a corrupt fucked up system.

  2. Simple, Its a plant! makes you calm, relax not like alcohol violent, sick and hangower. How many peopple see violent after smoking pot?🤣 NONE! How did you fell the next day after smoking pot? USA free country , yeah right! Wealty smart peopple smoking pot, but not the rest and dont you do it!🤣

  3. In other words, vote for me again and I promise I'll be the voice of the people. Phil, people already voted for you for this reason. You are a failure. Next batter up.

  4. Laziest group of people who cannot achieve anything. There are people who are able to build skyscrapers in the time it took for you guys to ultimately decide you want to keep postponing the vote until after the voting season, and they make 10x as much $$

  5. It's not about social justice, medical for those who need it or about what the citizenry wants (over 60% favor).  It is about $, power and connections.  Gov and Legislature wants $.  Governor wants $ and Control over MJ.  The connections want $ that come with the unreasonable regulations.  Pharmaceuticals want the status quo.   So both have reached a deal but the good old boys club has to provide cover for the legislators who are on the fence or opposed so no vote is taken.  For or against, the Legislature owes the public a vote so we can determine who we want to support in the coming elections in Nov.  Take a vote and take a stand.  The voters can then make their approval or disapproval known at the polls.  The point of having a Legislature is so bills can be debated and votes taken, not to debate and only vote if the outcome is known.  Why are they there?

  6. My black folks don't fall for this crap they will use this to put more of you in jail they are jealous of us black people don't fall in to this trap please listen!🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  7. DO NOT re-elect Ron rice. He's a senator from Newark who needs to get removed from his Senate duties. His antiquated ideas on marijuana are archaic and show just how ignorant he is.

    DO NOT re-elect Ron rice.

  8. It is amazing that it is so difficult to get marijuana legalization legislation passed in the state of New Jersey. I am sure the enormous presence of the pharmaceutical industry in the state has a lot to do with the failure to garner enough support, but so too does the prejudices and preconceptions of the non-marijuana consuming public. The pharmaceutical industry does have an outsized impact in the state and its politics. Yet, tobacco in all of its forms (without a single redeeming quality) and alcohol continue to be legal. With all of the deaths that have historically resulted directly from tobacco and alcohol consumption, it is clearly not a logical or rational motive that governs the laws of a state or a country, and this is by far one of the most poignant examples. Maybe, it is time to start to identify who the legislative opponents are of marijuana legalization and make that information public, so that the electorate begins to know what, why and who they are up against, so those opponents cannot hide in the dark shadows of anonymity anymore…

  9. He's the perfect hack/shill politician. The way he talks, acts, everything just a stereotypical rich a-hole who could give a crap about anything other than getting votes….you need a coat when you're around him to avoid the douche chills…
