Random Notes on NJ Government

Video: NJ Trooper, donned in latex gloves, searches man’s crotch after allegedly smelling marijuana.

I did not realize that the odor of marijuana, without more, justified a roadside, under-clothes search of a motorist’s genitals and anus by a State Trooper clad in latex gloves. I received this video in response to an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request made to the New Jersey State Police.
