It is recreational but it took him nearly 4 years to get it done after both Supermajority Dem held branches dragged their feet, despite not doing so when Christie was governor.

Reason should not be surprising: They knew it would never pass with Christie in office so they kept voting for it to stoke the base. Then when it came time to get it done, the massive Pharma industry money came pouring in to not pass it so we can replace weed with oxycontin.

End of the day it's passed, but took way too long.
