Extract: 

MAHWAH— The Township has joined a handful of Bergen County towns in banning marijuana sales ahead of a state bill that, if passed, would legalize the drug in New Jersey.

Mahwah’s prohibitions , adopted unanimously by the Township Council on Thursday, will block all marijuana establishments from opening in Mahwah, including dispensaries, cultivation facilities and manufacturing plants. It does not apply to sales of prescribed medical marijuana, which is legal in New Jersey.

Extract:

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto is supporting the legalization of recreational marijuana.

It would be a big step for Pittsburgh, and Pennsylvania, where medical marijuana is just taking off.

Peduto has long been a supporter of legalizing medical marijuana, but this is the first time he’s endorsed its recreational use.

He tweeted on Friday that he fully supports Auditor General Eugene Depasquale’s plan to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in Pennsylvania.
