Special Instructions: POSSIBLE ANCHOR INTRO: In New Jersey, the issue of criminal justice has been a key part of the conversation around legalizing recreational marijuana. But high arrest rates and wide racial disparities persist – even as the state draws nearer to legalizing pot. Leading to questions of how legalization will affect those already in the system – and how law enforcement will need to overcome new challenges to keep the public safe. Brenda Flanagan of PBS member station NJTV News reports.
