ELIZABETH, NJ - As local lawmakers wrestle with the issue of legalizing recreational marijuana in New Jersey, the New Jersey Legislative Black Caucus is holding hearings to obtain input from constituents.

Assemblyman Jamel Holley, who represents the Roselle, Elizabeth, Hillside, and Union, is a legalization proponent and is urging residents to attend a three-hour hearing.

“I've been an outspoken supporter of legalization because I believe that it will make our state more fair and put an end to the needless incarceration of thousands of people, most of whom are black and Latino,” says Holley. “Of course, this is a controversial issue and there are good people on both sides of it with strong opinions, and I'm proud to be a leader in this important public discussion."
