New Jersey Governor touts cannabis industry growth

The governor of New Jersey touted the state’s growing cannabis industry during his State of the State address on Tuesday, emphasizing work that’s being done to ensure that the market is equitable and right the wrongs of the drug war.

While discussing cannabis policy developments, Gov. Phil Murphy (D) also gave a nod to his invited guest, Darrin Chandler Jr., president of the minority-owned cannabis business Premium Genetics.

“We are growing an entirely new and broad-based adult-use cannabis industry—an industry that is making room for women and minority small business owners,” the governor said.

He also said more generally that the state is “leading by living up to our obligation to make the word ‘justice’ ring true in every community, to not just undo the injustices of the past but fix what was broken.”
