Cuomo Moves to Legalize Recreational Marijuana in New York Within Months

13

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that he would push to legalize recreational marijuana next year, a move that could generate more than $1.7 billion in sales annually and put New York in line with several neighboring states, the NEW YORK TIMES reports.

The highly anticipated proposal came in a speech in Manhattan on Monday, in which the governor outlined his agenda for the first 100 days of his third term.

“The fact is we have had two criminal justice systems: one for the wealthy and the well off, and one for everyone else,” Mr. Cuomo said before introducing the cannabis proposal, describing the injustice that had “for too long targeted the African-American and minority communities. “Let’s legalize the adult use of recreational marijuana once and for all,” he added.

  1. WHY!? WHY DID THE RABBONIM AND “ASKONIM” URGE US TO VOTE FOR THIS JERK!!! WHATEVER HE STANDS FOR IS AGAINST OUR TORAH AND HE IS PUSHING AN ANGENDA TO DESTROY YESHIVOS?

  2. “describing the injustice that had “for too long targeted the African-American and minority communities.”

    Amazing how the left always manages to create a “minority/racist” issue out of everything…

  3. What an idiot. Getting high and addicted is recreational? Maybe he should legalize recreational murder? How about recreational robbery? These are also African-American/Minority issues! N.Y. is dysfunctional enough without this meshugena! Maybe he can deal with issues targeting the Jewish community? Do we need people lining up to get their “medical/recreational” marijuana in the form of marijuana coffee/candy/soda/cake? This whole concept is dysfunctional! It’s interesting that we don’t have such things with standard medicines such as Advil/Tylenol and such! Maybe if it’s hard to “medicate” when you have a headache, you should be able to get on line for some Advil lollipops for “ease of medicating”!

    Hashem Yeracheim.
    May we be zoche to the coming of Moshiach and to live in a problem -free world b’mheira b’yameinu.
