The Jaffe Briefing - December 13, 2018

TRENTON - Even with a joint committee on legalizing cannabis in New Jersey, it looks increasingly doubtful that there will be a vote in 2018. It really seemed like recreational marijuana would have been legalized this fall, but there's a lot of smoke hanging arond. How should the state tax the drug? And how should a "cannabis commission" be established to oversee all the ...

The Jaffe Briefing - December 12, 2018

JERSEY CITY - For some, the chronic traffic at the Holland Tunnel is not what's really ticking them off these days. Rather, they are infuriated with the holiday décor. Someone at the Port Authority decided to stick a triangular tree over the letter "N" instead of "A" - and made the crossing a "TONNEL" by putting a wreath over the "U," ...

The Jaffe Briefing - December 11, 2018

MENDHAM - Not too long ago, the job of White House Chief of Staff was highly-coveted and well-respected for its massive influence within the Beltway. Now, it's the place you go to kill your career. There is a big "Help Wanted" sign hanging on the door knob at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., likely scrawled in crayon, and it looks like our very own former Gov. Chris Christie is once ...

The Jaffe Briefing - December 10, 2018

ON THE ROADS - Well, duh. A new report shows that North Dakota is the top state in the nation when it comes to driving. Well, of course. No one lives there. You can speed for miles and miles and not see a soul. And other great states to drive in? Well, duh, again. Those "top states," according to the 2018 Bankrate Best States for Drivers Study, include such wide open places as ...

The Jaffe Briefing - December 7, 2018

PRINCETON - If you add up all the brain power at Princeton University, it could figure a way to teach trigonometry to a flea. Yet the university has been struggling with all the bicycle thefts around the leafy campus. NJ.comreports the latest effort is for police to create "bait bikes."  They are equipped with GPS devices so cops can track them and hopefully find the ...

The Jaffe Briefing - December 6, 2018

STATEWIDE - Does New Jersey hate Christmas? Of course not, but that's not stopping one of those clickbait online survey companies from ranking the state 47thout of the 50 states in our level of bah humbug. This "source," called GetCenturyLink, was even nice enough to slap New Jersey with a Grinch sticker, reserved for the 10 least-merry states in the nation. The rankings were ...
