Recreational Cannabis

The NJ Cannabis Regulatory Enforcement Assistance and Marketplace Modernization Act (NJCREAMMA) (N.J.S.A. 24:6I-31 et seq.) legalizes the purchase, possession, and use of up to one ounce of cannabis (or the equivalent amount of cannabis products) for individuals twenty-one years of age and over in New Jersey.

Recreational cannabis consumption is PROHIBITED at institutions of higher education under NJCREAMMA. Specifically, the NJCREAMMA prohibits the consumption of any cannabis item available for lawful consumption “in any area of any building of, on the grounds of, or in any facility owned, leased or controlled by any public or private institution of higher education or related entity thereof, regardless of whether the area or facility is an indoor place or is outdoors.”
