The movement to end New Jersey’s failed marijuana policies relies on you making your voice heard. Your representatives need to hear from you.
Use the suggested script below for talking points if you need them.
"Hello, my name is [your name] and I live in [your address or neighborhood]. As the legislature is working to finalize the bill to legalize marijuana, I’m calling to urge [title/name of representative] to not only support this effort, but to make sure the final bill is fair and includes racial and social justice.
The version of the bill that was circulated last month is a good start, it does not sufficiently address racial and social justice.
The current draft does NOT include:
- a meaningful equity program to ensure those harmed by the drug war have access to the new economy.
- Reinvestment of the new tax dollars in communities harmed by the drug war, largely communities of color.
- An option for residents to grow a limited amount of their own marijuana.
Please support legalizing, taxing, and regulating marijuana for adults, and for including these meaningful measures toward justice. Thank you."
