Democrat State leaders have reached an agreement on legalizing recreational marijuana. A joint press release was issued Tuesday.

Governor Phil Murphy, Senate President Steve Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, Senator Nicholas Scutari and Assemblywoman Annette Quijano have adopted the term “adult-use marijuana.”

A final version of the bill is undergoing technical edits and should be released in several days.

The “adult-use” marijuana will be subject to a $42/ounce excise tax, imposed at cultivation.
