DescriptionLawmakers sent a marijuana cleanup bill to Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk Monday, ending a standoff over legalization that wore on for roughly three-and-a-half months after voters overwhelmingly backed the policy at the polls in November.

“This is momentous day,” said State Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D-Linden), the Senate’s top legalization backer.
