FLORHAM PARK, N.J.—Bressler, Amery & Ross, P.C. is pleased to congratulate attorney Jessica Gonzalez on her selection to the NJBIZ Next Generation of Leaders for 2021. Gonzalez will be featured in the July 12 issue of NJBIZ, which will profile approximately 50 business executives throughout New Jersey who are poised to become influential leaders in their fields.
A longtime leader in the cannabis industry, Gonzalez serves as outside general counsel for the national organization Minorities For Medical Marijuana. She was a vocal advocate for equity, local entrepreneurship and social justice during the passage of the “New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance and Marketplace Modernization Act”, a New Jersey bill which legalizes personal use cannabis for certain adults, decriminalizes possession of small amounts of marijuana, and removes marijuana as a Schedule I drug in the state. Jessica was a member of the social impact committee for NJ CAN 2020, the coalition that ran the most successful campaign for cannabis legalization in the country.
