Cannabis Legalization - Local Opt-Out

From: "Leigh Clark lclark@PROTECTED [NJLibsGrowBiz]" <NJLibsGrowBiz@PROTECTED>
Subject: Cannabis Legalization - Local Opt-Out
Date: March 30th 2021



There were some questions from our meeting today about how local municipalities can regulate cannabis use/sale following NJ’s marijuana decriminalization and cannabis legalization. 


The New Jersey League of Municipalities has some helpful resources on their website, specifically those related to the timeline municipalities have to opt-out:

NJLM - Cannabis Legalization -


The NJ Office of Attorney General also has a specific website with updates to this legislation.  The latest updates are from 3/26/21.


Additionally, if you get any legislative or law questions that you need assistance with, the New Jersey State Library’s Law Librarians are a great resource.  Their general reference email is reflaw@PROTECTED.
