Though the effort to legalize marijuana has been mired in political gridlock, the legislation does provides a road map for how legalized marijuana would be regulated and distributed.

To promote small businesses, a marijuana legalization bill mandates that 10 percent of licenses be given to shops that, among other things, process less than 1,000 pounds of cannabis every month.

Door-to-door marijuana delivery? Marijuana cafes?

Maybe.

New Jersey is inching toward becoming the 11th state to legalize marijuana for recreational use, though a vote this year on a bill to make the drug legal is nearly impossible.

The final day of voting in the State Legislature this year is Monday, and it appears the bill has become mired in Trenton gridlock, with Gov. Philip D. Murphy and Stephen M. Sweeney, the Senate president, struggling to round up enough votes to pass it.

Still, the legislation will likely form the backbone of how New Jersey moves forward to legalize recreational marijuana.

While a groundbreaking companion bill that would clear the criminal records of many people with drug offenses has captured headlines, the rest of the 152-page bill is a compendium of various measures from other states that have legalized the drug.
