For today's weed news we go to the great Garden State.
Although New Jersey governor Phil Murphy really wanted to get recreational weed legalized in his state by the end of the year, it looks like he is going to have to wait until 2019 after all.
After meeting with New Jersey Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin as well as State Senate President Stephen Sweeney, Gov. Murphy was unable to come up with a compromise that satisfied all three parties.
According to NJ.com, the main issue holding back progress is how much to tax recreational weed once it goes on sale.
According to reports, the governor has been pushing for a tax of around 25%, which in my opinion seems kind of high. But others have proposed a weed tax as low as 10%, which would actually equal Nevada's tax on recreational weed, and they officially have the lowest tax rate of all recreational states.
But regardless of what tax rate they agree on, it seems that most parties involved already agree that recreational Cannabis should be allowed in New Jersey. And that is good news if I ever heard some.
Hopefully they pick a number closer to 10 then to 25. But more importantly, I really really hope that they allow people to grow at least a few of their own plants at home. After all, it is called the fuckin Garden State =')
And that's what's up!
