It's exhausting to watch New Jersey continue to fight the good fight with regards to the
. Court case after court case, it continues to be very apparent that this ain't happening any time soon. And yet the pro-legalization camp remains as confident/delusional as ever. You could have an across-the-board “no freakin’ way” from the U.S. Supreme Court and New Jersey would still say it's all a matter of time.
"It's a squeaker," New Jersey Sen. Raymond Lesniak said after the hearing. "I think we're headed to federal regulation, which is fine."
"As we have reiterated time and time again -- the existing federal law is unconstitutional and arbitrary; it picks winners and losers, while continuing to deny New Jerseyans the right to participate in this billion-dollar industry," Pallone and LoBiondo said in a joint statement released after Wednesday's hearing. "We are hopeful that today's hearing signals the start of a new era in our state, and we intend to see this fight through to the end."
