In 2016, New Jersey police arrested some 32,000 people for marijuana possession, more than every state except New York and Texas, despite both of those states having much larger populations.
Data from the FBI shows that New Jersey also had the second highest arrest rate for marijuana possession in the country, behind only Wyoming.
Analyzing that data further, NJ Advance Media was able to determine the 2016 marijuana possession arrest rate for every police department in the state. Police in one town arrest 63 out of every 1,000 residents for marijuana possession. In another, police bust only 1 out of every 6,300.
