Report: Asbury Park Council open to marijuana sales 

ASBURY PARK, N.J. (AP) — The mayor and a majority of council members in the New Jersey city that’s featured in Bruce Springsteen songs are open to allowing the sale of marijuana if the state legalizes it.

Asbury Park Mayor John Moor tells the Asbury Park Press he has no problem with medical or recreational marijuana if it’s legally dispensed and taxed.

The city has not been approached by any companies interested in opening a dispensary.

Point Pleasant Beach and Berkeley Township have introduced ordinances banning the sale, saying they want to preserve the family-oriented nature of their communities.

Democratic Gov-elect Phil Murphy supports legalizing marijuana.

The U.S. Justice Department last week overturned Obama administration guidelines that federal prosecutors shouldn’t interfere with states allowing people to use pot for medical and recreational uses.

Proposal: Public Media Funding Eliminated

The FY 18 federal budget has been released and it calls for eliminating funding for the Corporation For Public Broadcasting.  Although this funding accounts for 0.01% of the federal budget it provides critical funding for over 1,400 of local public television and radio stations around the country.

23% of 90.5 The Night’s annual budget comes from CPB.  Imagine this station running 23% less of the programming you love…23% less of all this great music, 23% less interviews, 23% less DJs, 23% less traffic, weather, and local programming.

This is a true threat to what you enjoy and rely on.  We need the support of you, our listeners and members.  Help us provide 100% of what you love on the air now!
