New Jersey’s cannabis advocates are forming a campaign coalition, called NJ CAN 2020, to support the state’s adult-use ballot initiative this November, according to an NJ.com report.

A legislative effort to legalize adult-use cannabis failed to garner enough support to clear the New Jersey Senate last year, prompting lawmakers to place a legalization question on the state’s 2020 ballot.

NJ CAN 2020 will bring together diverse voices to support a racial and social justice approach to cannabis legalization, the news outlet reported. The group is made up of members from various organizations including New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform, the ACLU of New Jersey, Doctors for Cannabis Regulation, the Latino Action Network, the American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp, Law Enforcement Action Partnership, the NAACP New Jersey State Conference, and the NJ CannaBusiness Association, according to NJ.com.
