New Jersey Courts Vacate Almost 88,000 Marijuana Cases

New Jersey Courts Vacate Most Of Over 88,000 Marijuana Cases

I recently came across the following article relating to the recent Supreme Court ruling that demarcated New Jersey’s marijuana laws from the rest of the country. The ruling, in the case of People v. Maldonado, Inc., was to vacate nearly 88,000 cases of defendants charged with marijuana possession in New Jersey since 2010. The ruling came in response to a 2012 motion from the ACLU of New Jersey, which argued that the state’s drug laws violated a 2012 provision of the U.S. Constitution, which bans “cruel and unusual punishments.” The order vacates all marijuana cases in New Jersey for the past three years, with the exception of those that were dismissed under pretrial diversion programs.
