Marijuana Legalization Bill Introduced in New Jersey

NEW JERSEY - A lawmaker in another state moves to legalize marijuana.

A New Jersey State Senator is expected to introduce legislation today to legalize, and tax, marijuana in New Jersey.

NJ.com reports the bill is modeled after Colorado's system.

The sponsor, a prosecutor, tells the website the war on pot is a failure, and legalizing it would kill the illegal drug market.

Governor Chris Christie has said he will never legalize marijuana, according to the website, because of the message it would send to children.
