I really couldn't tell you why...but the list of towns in New Jersey opposing the recreational use, sale, and the overall legalization of marijuana continues to grow.

And this is all before the actual legal bill has been passed.

However, according to NJ.com, the hope is that lawmakers, "plan to have a recreational marijuana bill, and a medical marijuana expansion, ready for introduction by the end of August."

So basically, it is possible that despite all of its opposition, the legalization is going to happen anyway.

Take a look at the towns at the Jersey Shore that are completely against recreational and medical marijuana expansion to keep yourself out of trouble
