Jon-Henry Barr, Esq.

Secretary, New Jersey Municipal Prosecutors Association
Municipal Prosecutor, Clark, New Jersey

"As a prosecutor, I have spent thousands of dollars and countless hours taking police officers off the roads and into the courtroom, and at the end of the day, it is usually just over a joint. It's collectively brought me and so many prosecutors to the point where we believe that regulation is the only way to ensure that we are not wasting precious taxpayer dollars and we have the time to prosecute serious cases."

Richard Smith

President, NAACP New Jersey State Conference

“New Jersey’s marijuana laws are failing people of color. Black New Jerseyans are nearly three times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than white people, despite similar usage rates. Taxing, regulating, and legalizing marijuana possession will be a step forward in reducing the disproportionate burden the criminal justice system has on people of color in New Jersey. Marijuana regulation will eliminate thousands of arrests per year and provide new sources of revenue to invest in our communities for education, jobs and public safety.”

Dr. David Nathan, MD, DFAPA

Princeton Psychiatry
Clinical Associate Professor, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

“Throughout my career as a clinical psychiatrist, I have borne witness to the devastation brought upon cannabis users — not so much by misuse of the drug, but by a justice system that chooses a sledgehammer to kill a weed. Currently, the criminal consequences of marijuana use are far worse than the medical consequences, and this is a national tragedy. Marijuana possession should be legal for adults, and we should use revenues from marijuana taxation to educate young people about the actual harms caused by its recreational use.”

Dr. David R. Barile, MD
