A case study on the integration of cannabis law enforcement in New Jersey
Legalized medical cannabis is implemented in 44 states in the USA while recreational marijuana legislation has challenged the law enforcement community. The public safety concerns of citizens involve a perceived increase in crimes, marijuana being a gateway for hard drug usage, the influx of residents from bordering states, increased fatal crashes, and the depletion of vital resources. In New Jersey, the State Police Forensic Science Laboratory System is the primary support system for law enforcement and laboratory professionals. Several Fatality Analysis Reporting System training programs are offered statewide, while the critical need remains to review enforcement practices. This study examines current medical cannabis enforcement practices to determine pending challenges and establish solutions for the state's oversight of legalized recreational marijuana.
