Power & Politics - Full Show for Aug. 17

Posted: Updated:

This week on Power and Politics, we take a closer look at the deepening water crisis in Newark. Thousands of residents have been told to use bottled water because filters to screen out lead may not be working.

Plus, Senate President Steve Sweeney has a proposal he says could lead to legal marijuana by the end of the year.

And we'll hear from the Bridgegate defendant who is appealing her case to the Supreme Court.
