New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal last week directed all prosecutors to hold off on trying low-level cannabis crimes as lawmakers work on the language of a legalization measure, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. “All New Jersey municipal, county, and state prosecutors are instructed to seek an adjournment, until at least Jan. 25, 2021. … “Fairness and justice require that we, as prosecutors, not move forward with charges that the Legislature may foreclose in the near future. We will provide more comprehensive guidance, including direction on handling of previously adjudicated matters, when the Legislature provides details of the framework for marijuana decriminalization and the legalization of adult-use cannabis.” – Grewal in the guidance via the Inquirer The guidance does not include driving under the influence and stops short of prohibiting arrests. In a statement following voters’ approval of the measure on Election Day, Grewal indicated that “all of the State’s criminal laws relating to marijuana continue to apply, until, among other things, the Legislature enacts a law creating that regulatory framework.” “It is important that residents accurately understand the current situation, so they do not inadvertently engage in criminal conduct relating to marijuana – conduct that may be legal in the future once the Legislature acts, but is not presently legal based on yesterday’s vote,” he said in the November 5 statement. Lawmakers recently tabled the legalization legislation until December 7 as the Assembly and Senate have been unable to agree on how many adult-use dispensaries would be allowed to operate; the Senate appears to favor no limits, while the Assembly favors 37, the report says. Another legalization bill was rejected after an amendment to decriminalize psilocybin was attached to it. The Legislature has until January 1 to create the framework for the industry before the amendment takes effect.

据《费城问询报》报道,新泽西州总检察长Gurbir Grewal上周指示所有检察官暂缓审理低级大麻犯罪案件,因为立法者正在制定合法化措施的措辞。 “所有新泽西州的市,县和州检察官都被指示要求延期,至少到2021年1月25号。…“公平和正义要求我们,作为检察官,不要提出立法机关可能在不久的将来取消的指控。我们将提供更全面的指导,包括在立法机关提供大麻非刑罪化和成人吸食大麻合法化框架的细节时,就如何处理先前裁定的事项提供指导。“--Grewal在《通过问询者提供的指导》中写道 该指南不包括酒后驾驶,也没有禁止逮捕。Grewal在选举日投票通过这项法案后发表的一份声明中表示,“该州所有与大麻有关的刑事法律将继续适用,直到立法机构制定一项法律来建立这一监管框架。” 他在11月5号的声明中说:“重要的是,居民们要准确地理解当前的形势,这样他们就不会无意中从事与大麻有关的犯罪行为。一旦立法机构采取行动,这些行为将来可能是合法的,但根据昨天的投票结果,这些行为目前并不合法。” 由于国会和参议院无法就允许多少家成人药房营业达成一致意见,立法者最近将合法化立法提交到12月7号;报告说,参议院似乎赞成没有限制,而议会则赞成37个限制。另一项合法化法案在附上裸盖菇素非刑事化的修正案后被否决。 在修正案生效之前,立法机关必须在一月一日之前为该行业建立一个框架。 结束 作者: TG于2014年加入Ganjapreneur,担任新闻撰稿人,并于2016年开始主持Ganjapreneur播客。他住在纽约州北部,在当地的一所大学教授媒体研究。
