TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

August 07, 2018 at 5:30 am

One year after the violent clashes and racial unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia, Frontline and ProPublica investigate the white supremacists and neo-nazis involved. Could this be the same group making headlines for dropping a hate-filled banner right here in the Big Apple? We have the details. As the Mayor directs the NYPD to issue tickets over jail time for those caught with marijuana, Governor Cuomo announces a new work group to regulate our pot market. We visit a local dispensary to meet one of the biggest drug dealers in New York City. New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood goes head to head with President Donald Trump. Tonight, she opens up about criminal justice, reforming the state and suing the Donald J. Trump Foundation. We visit Long Island City, Queens to bring you inside the art and science of neon.

Aired on August 6, 2018.
