About this Episode

Now that marijauna is legal in New Jersey, who gets to profit from weed – which was responsible for placing thousands of people of color in jail or prison.

In the Season 3 premire, "Marijuana: Who Makes Money, Who's in Jail?," Junius and Francesca sit down with Joe Grumbine, CEO of Willow Creek Springs, Inc., Dwight Jenkins, Director of Newly Destined, Inc., and former Mayor of Irvington Wayne Smith to discuss the organization, economics and fairness behind the legalization of marijuana in the state.

What has the new legalization done so far to effect decriminalization, social equity, and racial justice associated with the drug. What are considerations behind this new legislation that newcomers should be aware of. And at the end of the day, who truly profits from the state's legalization of marijuana.
