New Jersey lawmakers passed a measure Thursday setting up a recreational marijuana marketplace, sending the legislation to Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, who is expected to sign the bill. 

The Democrat-led Assembly and Senate passed the bill during sessions that were held remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The legislation now goes to Murphy, who along with lawmakers reached an agreement on the legislation earlier this month. He’s expected to to sign the bill, though it’s unclear when. 

New Jersey joins 15 other states and the District of Columbia with recreational marijuana.
