New Jersey became the latest state to begin selling legal recreational marijuana — not on Wednesday, explained Tori-Anne Blake, spokeswoman for New Jersey’s newly formed Cannabis Regulatory Commission, because “selecting 4/20 for opening day would have presented unmanageable logistical challenges” for buyers and communities.
People lined up before dawn to buy pot from a legal dispensary, not their illegal dealer.
The New York Times in Florida, reported that medical marijuana is legal but recreational weed is not; even if it were, slipping people marijuana in their food unawares is a felony, as a bride and her caterer learned.
Seminole County Sheriff’s Office arrested Danya Svoboda and her wedding caterer, Joycelyn Bryant, on charges of reckless tampering, delivery of marijuana, and culpable negligence on Wednesday night.
Guests at Svoboda’s February 19 wedding reception in Longwood told deputies they felt “weird” and “stoned” after eating the food, according to the police report.
