The Kenney administration’s announcement Tuesday that it will sanction safe-injection sites for heroin addicts is almost certain to politicize an issue that had been widely seen as a public health crisis. But in a political environment in which the Trump administration is threatening to crack down on marijuana use in states that have legalized the drug, it’s hard to imagine that government-sanctioned heroin use will win unanimous support.
Federal prosecutors said Friday they would retry U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D.,N.J.) on bribery charges, two months after a jury in Newark said it was hopelessly deadlocked. The Department of Justice said it would also retry Menendez’s co-defendant, Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen. A federal judge in November declared a mistrial in the case after jurors failed to reach a unanimous verdict. Jurors told reporters afterward that the vote was 10-2 to acquit both men.
TRENTON – Philip D. Murphy, a Democrat and former Wall Street banker who has never held elected office, was sworn in as New Jersey’s 56th governor shortly before noon on Tuesday amid the traditional pageantry accompanying the transfer of power in the state capital.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
