New Jersey: First Day Of Legal Weed Sales Has Many Celebrating

Zinger Key Points
  • While possession of up to 1 ounce will be legal, driving while high is definitely not.
  • Some local Jersey police departments have cautioned they’re intending to use specially trained drug recognition experts to spot drivers under the influence.

New Jersey weed enthusiasts started lining up before dawn at dispensaries Thursday across the Garden State as adult-use cannabis sales went into effect.

After the long wait on a bumpy road to marijuana legalization, enthusiasm is running high.

“With soul music blaring, free doughnuts in the parking lot and a balloon arch at the entrance, New Jersey's cannabis kickoff for people 21 and older had the feel of a fair more than a store opening,” noted WJBF, local ABC station.
