The Mercer County Narcotics Task Force has made headlines this week when they discovered a massive amount of street drugs being transported by a Floridian trucker. The driver was only passing through the state of New Jersey and pulling over at a rest area when a nearby police K-9 unit alerted his human partner that drugs were nearby. http://ow.ly/tzSh30kBrk1

Statistics from 2016 show that around 36,000 individuals were arrested on marijuana-related charges in New Jersey. An American Civil Liberties Union report released the following year indicated that black New Jersey citizens are almost three times more likely to be arrested for marijuana-related crimes. These crime statistics are inconsistent with the policies set forth by Governor Phil Murphy who considers marijuana legalization to be a social justice issue. http://ow.ly/ofYk30kzaRo
