New York has slowly been moving in the direction of legalizing recreation marijuana.
The legislature should speed up the process:
“A burglar trying to rob a Main Street apartment early today Monday was shot in the hand by the gun-toting tenant, police said. New Rochelle police said Darius Rogers and a second man broke into an apartment at 759 Main St. around 12:49 a.m. Rogers was armed, but so was the tenant, 21-year-old Nicholas Collado, and Collado shot the intruder, police said. The second intruder fled. Rogers was transported to a local hospital and was treated for non-life threatening injuries. He is facing felony charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon …”
Good. He got what he deserved.
“… Police said they found narcotics in the apartment. So, Collado is facing felony charges of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and second-degree criminal possession of marijuana.”
Decriminalize all of it including the hallucinogenics and get the state out of the drug control business altogether. It is bad policy.
