Do not operate large machinery including automobiles while under the influence of cannabis. Driving under the influence of marijuana in New Jersey, or DUI marijuana, is a violation of N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, and may result in a mandatory license suspension, fines and surcharges, and potential jail time – among other consequences. 

Cannabis containers must be sealed shut in your car. 

Do not share your cannabis with anyone under 21 years old. 

In NJ, general cannabis use cannot be a determining factor for hiring or firing someone. However, employers do have the right to maintain a drug and alcohol-free work environment.  In-house or contracted Drug Recognition Experts may perform random drug tests for intoxication at work and may test anyone who appears to be impaired on the job, or who has been in a workplace accident.
