N.J.'s move to legalize marijuana has begun. Here's all you need to know about it.

Gov. Chris Christie is vehemently opposed to legalizing marijuana and he has six months left on his final term. And the election for governor will matter for supporters of legalizing pot: Democratic candidate Phil Murphy supports legalization but Republican candidate Kim Guadagno does not.
Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D-Union), the bill's sponsor, said he wants to begin the discussion now to build support among his colleagues in the legislature and across the state.

One has to wonder, though, how the DEA came up with these 250 insanely ridiculous terms for weed?
Some are just strain names, but most seem to have been pulled out a hat, the Mad Hatter’s hat, that is.
Come on, Smoochy Woochy Poochy?
