I think this is great news. And hopefully passes ASAP.
If this passes, NYC will no longer hold the shamful title of being the arrest capital of the world when it comes to MJ.

good, I support this. Our drug laws really have to be re evaluated, as they are old and antiquated and need to be updated.

The thread is not about me.
It's about stopping the enforcement of draconian laws, but more importantly it's about self-governance of your own body.

Wanna call that hippy? I got no problem with that.

Just playing with you man. I'm glad you took it like a champ. I can care less if people want to smoke a plant that makes you sleepy. It literally has no effect on my life.

Sure. It's ridiculous that a kid's future education and job can hinge on something so minor.
