BCEI Coordinator, John Bailey said, “this cannabis conversation looking at the City of Trenton in comparison with the state and national cannabis landscape should be very interesting in that the regulations and CRC rules are here and municipalities are opting in or out. Trenton is a city impacted by the War on Drugs and how it responds as well as prepares for the journey forward is important and could set the tone for legalized adult use in New Jersey.”
