[The effort to legalize marijuana in New Jersey collapsed on Monday. Read the latest updates here.]
This week the New Jersey Legislature could pass the most progressive recreational marijuana bill in the country. Lawmakers were poised to vote on the issue as early as today.
New York may not legalize marijuana anytime soon.
My colleagues Nick Corasaniti, who covers New Jersey, and Vivian Wang, who covers the New York Legislature, explained.
What makes New Jersey’s marijuana bill so progressive?
Mr. Corasaniti: Mainly, two things: criminal records and access to the market.
• First, the bill would make it possible to expunge nonviolent criminal records for marijuana-related offenses (up to five pounds, one of the highest thresholds in the country).
People with past convictions, or who are incarcerated or on parole, would be eligible for a clean slate, and they could request expungement online.
• Second, the state would require that at least 10 percent of licenses for marijuana businesses go to small companies. Those licenses would be geared toward low-income or high-crime cities, or ones that have had a lot of marijuana arrests.
Basically, places that have been hit hard by marijuana criminalization would reap some benefits of cannabis legalization.
New Jersey would be the 11th state to legalize marijuana, along with Washington, D.C. Wealthy, white investors have traditionally reaped the profits of the emerging industry.
Where would people be free to consume marijuana?
New Jersey’s bill would allow for “public consumption areas.”
People wouldn’t be able to consume marijuana outdoors in public spaces. There would be designated areas for use, mainly at marijuana dispensaries: buy the drug in one room, and use it in another.
The bill would also allow casinos and hotels to have consumption areas.
Also, the bill would allow marijuana delivery.
Where does New York stand on all this?
Ms. Wang: Legalization felt like an inevitability when Governor Cuomo announced his support for it in December. But that was just three months ago; that’s not a lot of time to figure all this out.
Some counties, like on Long Island, said that if the state legalizes marijuana, they may opt out. It’s politically tricky.
Then there’s the lobbying. Social justice groups don’t want well-funded medical marijuana groups rewarded. Medical marijuana companies have been lobbying lawmakers to make sure they’re not frozen out of the New York market.
And after the collapse of the Amazon deal for a campus in Queens, the relationship between Mr. Cuomo and his fellow Democrats who control the Legislature has gotten complicated. That makes negotiating this deal harder.
Mr. Corasaniti: New Jersey’s governor, Philip Murphy, has been working on this for over a year. Before that, a Democratic state senator was pushing a bill in March 2017.
Why did New York get a later start on this?
Ms. Wang: Mr. Cuomo called marijuana a “gateway drug” in February 2017. By the end of 2018, he said it should be legalized.
In between, he was running for re-election and facing a primary challenge from the actress Cynthia Nixon. She supported legalization (and auctioned off a bong as a fund-raiser).From The Times
At Stuyvesant High School, there are few black and Hispanic students. “It’s just wrong,” one student said.
A conspiracy theorist, the mob and a mystery motive: Anthony Comello is accused of slaying a reputed Gambino boss.
A video showed a man repeatedly kicking a 78-year-old woman on the subway. A 36-year-old from Yonkers has been arrested in the incident.
Officers shot a half-naked man who set his car on fire after crashing into a police vehicle.

Events are subject to change, so double-check before heading out. For more events, see the going-out guides from The Times’s culture pages.And finally: A hard-hat fashion show for girls
The Times’s Andy Newman reports:
One by one, women in hard hats and construction boots and tool belts sashayed down the aisle of the auditorium at the Bronx Design and Construction Academy.
“Our next lady is sheet metal worker Esther Minton!” the announcer called, to hoots and cheers. Snips and a sheet metal hammer swung against Ms. Minton’s hips.
To interest girls in the building trades, the NYC Coalition for Women in Construction and Grant Associates, a work force training company, put on a fashion show of sorts at the academy, a public school in the Melrose neighborhood, on Thursday.
Carpenters, plumbers, electricians and ironworkers took their turn on the runway.
Before the show, there was a career fair. Thelma Louise Fernandes, an apprentice sheet metal worker, told students what it was like to be a woman on a work site.
“I put hearts and stars on my tools because men don’t like to steal tools with hearts and stars on them,” she said.
“How much discrimination is there?” asked Nereida Morales, a junior.
Plenty, Ms. Fernandes said: condescending comments, crude boasting. “It’s just part of the job,” she said. “But if you’re uncomfortable, you need to speak up because nothing changes if people don’t change it.”
Women are making inroads in the male-dominated building trades. In 2011, 3 percent of the apprentices in Sheet Metal Workers Local 28 were women, said Leah Rambo, who runs the union’s apprenticeship program. Now it’s up to 13 percent, she said.
Union metal workers make good money: an hour by the time they complete their five-year apprenticeship.
The fashion show was the brainchild of Judaline Cassidy, a plumber who sits on the board of the coalition and runs a program called Tools and Tiaras.
Act 2 featured the women in street clothes. “I told them to have fun, wear what they want, be whoever they are outside of the workplace,” she said.
Nereida, who wants to be an architectural sheet metal worker, pronounced the show “really eye-opening.”
“These women, they could be anybody if you see them in the street,” she said, “and they’re doing all these astonishing jobs.”
It’s Monday — make a fashion statement in your office.Metropolitan Diary: Strudel, she said
It was a cold, drizzly Sunday morning in 1973, and I was at the Jon Vie bakery on Sixth Avenue in the West Village. The chocolate cheesecake was a specialty of theirs.
There were two customers there besides me: a man ordering at the counter and a woman standing next to me who was all bundled up.
“Here you go,” the counterman said, handing a cake box to the man who was waiting. “Our last chocolate cheesecake.”
The woman and I turned to each other in dismay.
“Not the last chocolate cheesecake!” we said at the same time.
“I hear their apple strudels are pretty good,” the woman added.
That’s when I realized it was Angela Lansbury.
