You can't walk anywhere in NYC for more than 5 minutes these days without catching a whiff of someone smoking pot. If people want to smoke pot that's their business but they should keep it indoors. Marijuana smoke smells completely disgusting and is a bad mix of skunk, old lady sofa, and festering sneakers.

It seems that with the lowering of enforcement action every year people feel the entitled right to smoke it everywhere and anywhere without consideration for anyone around them. And it's only going to get worse especially with De Blasio in office

I don't think they want you smoking it indoors, either.

Most of the time I smell it on the street (which has been increasing in frequency), it is coming from somebody's house or apartment...

Not all plants are made alike. Burning wood from a fireplace smells fantastic yet cannabis has a disgusting stuffy smell

If enough people vote against you, would it change your opinion?
