Bramnick: Drug dealers get off the hook and patients are held hostage with legal marijuana push

TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick voiced serious concerns with letting convicted drug dealers caught with five pounds of marijuana more easily clear their record.

“Only in New Jersey would they expunge a drug dealer’s record for something that still remains a crime,” said Bramnick (R-Union).  “It’s outrageous that Trenton would expunge a drug dealer’s criminal background in an effort to gain enough votes for legalization.”

Bramnick also said it was unfair that the vote to expand medical marijuana is being held hostage unless the recreational marijuana bill is passed.

“There is no good reason that patients should have to wait for better care until recreational marijuana is legalized,” continued Bramnick.
