"so what happen to genesis 1:29 god provided us with the herb to eat and heal." Remember laws are crated for the VERY, VERY, RICH in this Country...there not for the average JOE! If they are dragging those old dogs out about Marijuana usually it's just to protect an Industry already in PLAY! Who would benefit from that LAW: the Medical industry, Drug Industry, Alcohol and tobacco are afraid of cutting into profits! I wish the god it was for our safety, but the more and more I know about these people, Forget it!

Bloomberg just an 'out of touch' old man! He should be in a nursing home.

Bloomberg one day it's fine and the next it's not. It maybe illegal to sell it but it's not to buy or smoke it. Gov. Cary made a law in NY when his son repeatly gpt caught with weed that 7/8 of and oz is legal in your home in NY for your own use . It has to be in the same baggie other words it would be intent to sell. So smoke that Bloombeger. They could be making money on the Taxes of sale here. Our gov see that. and Bloomberg doesn't make the laws of NY State Cuomo does. So he can stick it in his Pipe and smoke his pipe and smoke it ! He's not the law or Gov here.

Your Kingpin of NYC has spoken. Where's the corrupt police chief that's usually standing behind him?

And I don't want Bloomberg to continue breathing! He is a N a z i, control freak, liberal!

In 10,000 years of known marijuana use there has been 0 cases of overdose due to the plant. People HAVE overdosed on pot LACED with illegal substances.... Do the math. It's a no brainer to get our wonder plant off the toxic illegal market so the almost countless benefits can be reaped by the masses. The ex DEA members are ignorant... I mean stupid ( look up those definitions) and base their judgement off long pushed false information, NOT facts, NOT research! Show me the source and how the information was collected and processed. I could provide numerous REPUTABLE sources of scientific studies that prove the opposite!

Bloomberg is a douchebag

Pot is not a narcotic. It is an herb. Who cares what Bloomberg thinks.

Bloomburg is an *&%^%*&( still stuck in the 50's and if he could make 5 million a year he would change his mind real quick, lol nyc makes millions off teens, with micro quantities of weed,they are charged with life following drug crimes..(disabling futures)..pot = poor is the plan,...and that way, they can still make something MORE off poor people. not to mention if leaglized, drinkers become smokers some, addicted people will fall back on weed simply because it is not criminal, and can be left alone/thus less crime/HALF the drugs sold on TV would be worthless.... the benefits go on and on

You know the DEA wants it marijuana is an illegal drug, so they can make the money selling it to you

It's not Bloomberg's position to control legislation.
