Leading Dems Staking Claims in Effort to Direct “All Revenues” from Legal Marijuana Back to Their Own Districts

Senator Mike Doherty (R-23) warned that infighting among Democrats about the taxation of marijuana and how to spend any resulting revenues makes it clear that most New Jerseyans will not see any of the fiscal benefits that were promised as a result of legalization:

“While Democrats promised New Jerseyans that tax revenues from legal marijuana would be a panacea for our State budget woes, they’re already fighting over the money and how much they’ll each get for their own districts.

“Once again, struggling rural and suburban families will get none of the tax relief they deserve. It’s yet another broken fiscal promise from Governor Murphy and New Jersey Democrats.”
