Interesting

A lot of questions remain unanswered. How many offenses of possesion before jail time is required, and what constitutes for"small" amounts?

Doomberg is hilarious.
Ban soda because you're all too fat, but smoke some pot and enjoy the munchies.

MJ-related offenses are the undisputed number #1 cause of arrests in the city.

NYC has the shameful title of being the city that arrest most people for MJ-related offenses in the world.

This is a step in the right direction, albeit a baby step.
We need to be running on this issue not crawling. Decriminalization is not enough.
Full legalization for medical and recreational purposes is...

This is good, but not good enough. Why can't they just legalize it already?

I think this is fine as it is.

And I doubt drug dealers themselves want marijuana legal. Ifs its legalized, the corporate sector would take it over entirely, like they did alcohol and tobacco. If anything, it would be good for state revenue but very bad for the existing growers and sellers, who would get forced out of this market.

I personally have never done weed (or any illicit drug).

I don't do POT, so it really doesn't affect me. So its not my mission in life to legalize pot.

It's an idiotic comment, not worth replying.
It WILL be legalized nationwide. It's not a matter of if, but rather of when.
I give it no more than 50 yrs from now.
