New Jersey’s new governor reiterated a campaign promise to legalize marijuana during his inauguration speech on Tuesday.

“A stronger and fairer New Jersey embraces criminal justice reform comprehensively, and that includes a process to legalize marijuana,” Phil Murphy, a Democrat, said moments after being sworn in as the state’s chief executive.

The newly revamped gubernatorial website now says the incumbent “will end mass incarceration by pursuing the legalization of marijuana and comprehensively reviewing all criminal sentencing laws.”

A stronger and fairer New Jersey embraces comprehensive criminal justice reform — including a process to legalize marijuana — and focuses on creating housing that is affordable and safe from the danger of lead. #NewDayNJ
