judge spoke to all 12 jurors, and all 4 alternates. asking them a general question, did you talk among yourself about the trial, and did you hear anything regarding media coverage. out of the 12, 4 said yes, we heard something. out of 4,ally it nat alternatesy were taken to chambers and questioned about what they heard or did not hear, the judge decided we're to start afresh, begin deliberations again. several hours later, the jury passed a note to the judge saying we're deadlocked. regardless, judge instructing jury to return tomorrow at 9:30. to begin delibbin deliberation . bill: is she give -- do you think she giving one alternate

partnerinpartnering worked withr in massachusetts, when state legalized marijuana to turn medical recreational dispensary nonprofits to for-profits, said there would be a lot of pot holes when it comes to passing regulation in new jersey. >> i think it will take a while to ramp it up, i think you are talking about a couple years, ii know that is disappointing for some, they have to enact legislation, then adopt regulation, and qualify the licensees. reporter: some economists say legalization would cause price of marijuana to drop. price of weed.com that collects the user submission indicate new jersey highest quality cost $345 an ounce average, and in colorado high quality $2 42 an ounce. >> i am ashley johnson reporting
for "chasing news." >> thank you. >> all right bringing in our panel to break it down, lauren nanos is back with us, lawyer and legal columnist, and bob bianci . and joining us, brand-new misty maris, a trial attorney, trial attorney, legal pot. sounds like all this discussion of price going up or down, new jersey can't seem to get a handle on what they want to do. >> you know, an issue is how much do you regulate the rbs business aspect of growing legal marijuana, have you seen this in different states, they are struggling with the issue and how that impact the price. it makes a difference. bill: bob, does this put law enforcement on defensive potentially, we talk about broken window theory of crime, and policing and newark, they drive the crime down by
arresting people for small crimes. >> i think that phil murphy is connectioning this marijuana issue with criminal justice reform, we don't as prosecuters and police have resources to continue to put team in state prison for low level offenses like marijuana, we know that everyone is doing it anyway, only person benefiting by that is the drug dealer. bill: do you agree as an attorney, drug dealers are benefiting, but think. that cost at a dispensary $400 an ounce, you buy on street $300. >> i think that is a problem, you point to really heart of matter that is what needs to be changed right away in new jersey. it is medical marijuana. that is more important, really should be handled immediately, and recreational use, i think that is a complex matter, agree with bob we don't want to waste our law enforcement resources.
but you know, i think -- >> it does whether when it comes to driving under the influence. >> it does, they should regulate it. and make sure that profit goes to putting police officers and d.a.r.e. officers in school, and education about responsible use of the drugs. >> okay. thank you. >> tma, more trouble. the video of an employee dragging a drunk off of the train. that, a couple weeks ago, "new york post" had front page cover of a guy slipping under the seat -- sleeping under the seat, a growing problem, i don't have to tell you, the problem is in front of you, when you are on the saab way. the question is, what are cops going to do did dr. it? cold winter is here, that makes it ways we check in with diana, what do have you? reporter: new york city mayor office said that subway are among safest this stay, but
those working on the train say. >> safe from what crime? gun crime, yes. but let's talk about all assaults that happen. reporter: thompson is a conductor to the mta, and this what he faces, drunks and homeless people passed out, refusing to get off of the train before returning to yard. >> we deal with a lot behind the scenes, with passengers getting aggressive, you wake them up, they alike they are in their home. they get aggressive with us, beer juswe're just doing your j. reporter: this photo, shows a homeless man sleeping beneath the commuter seats, then this video captured by claude harris, a worker is dragging and kicking a sleeping plan on the train, that worker has been removed. but transit workers say it further under lines their need are in back up from mta and nypd. they want cops assigned to all
subway stations to assist in passenger removal. >> i love coming to work, i don't like whether there is no change. mta is not protecting us or riders. reporter: thomson has gotten attention, he founded progressive act, hosting rallies outside of the headquarters, but nothing he said has changed. now in a statement, nypd said hey patrol the subway stations, and call 911, mayor's office said that homeless people cannot be ejected. just because they are facing hard times, no ward from the mta, diane areporting for "chasing news." >> all right, thank you, diane abringing the panel back in talk about video, and those guys dragged off, i thought that the worker was calm, question, where are the cops? >> well this puts new york city on notice, that mta is not
necessarily capable of handling these situations, we just saw it in the video. police should be called in. when you have someone, you can't wake them up. it is not appropriate for a mta worker to drag them off, this is a safety concern for the worker and the parent. bill: do you leave them there? >> you call. >> i agree, you have to treat this person with respect. you don't know if they are having a medical even or if they are dangerous. you have to have a policy with mta working with nypd, saying -- this is what we need to do. >> as a rider, they were probably happy, get that drunk off the train. train. >> it may be true, but making other parent passenger happen it goal of law enforcement. bill: every is miser able. >> that may be. but really, i think what they
said it correct, good training, and access to police. mta professionals are need paid to drag people off. bill: i say, grab them off the train. >> thanks. >> coming up "chasing news," ivanka trump is in the area, she is pitching a tax plan. it could save a lot of people a lot of money, we'll have details. dan zarrow, has your forecast, it has been freezing all weekend. do we get a break? >> a lot of cool temperatures to talk about for the week ahead, i prefer to talk about the one sunny day, and almost warm, i'll tell you which day that is. and we'll talk about cool

minimum wage hike is, we're talking about a small increment, i think 15 cents. i really hope that his promise to change the funding in new jersey school district, really hope he makes god that. god rest ye merry god -- good on that. i would like to see him stand behind that promise. bill: he not only testing. why drive that home as your first priority. >> my sister is a teacher, my niece is a teacher, i have done nothing but listen to over years chagrin in classroom people about the park testing and standardize testing, they are not allowed to take care of each student and engage their individual progress. i think he is on to something, this is say direction -- this is a direct, a right direction.

working families, they need to understand when the plan will do for them and the state. and we really had a good discussion about helping working families, and businesses of all size, small, and big. bill: there seems to be a disconnect with some positions that some take to oppose the tax refortthe taxreform package, sas away deduction worry those with their own businesses and child care deductiontions, what do you say? >> well, look at what happened in last 30 years, more loopholes get created, every time they get created, rates go up for everyone else. so we're trying to go from a high rate, high loophole system to a lower rate less exception
system, we can't touch anything without anyone getting upset about it we're trying to preserve the things that we believe are most important for our society, encouraging homeownership with the mortgage deduction. >> what is ivanka's role in this. >> she was involved in increasing child tax credit. that is one thing we too in bill, and we add a new credit for nonchildren depend, if you need a grandparent to live with you, she was involved with that. bill: congressman thank you. >> appreciate your time, good luck, and drive safe. >> as we approach mid point of november, normal highs for the time of year about 55 or 56, right now wir we're below, that notable exception will be thursday of that week. no major storm systems on the
