The Governor and legislature have reached an agreement on the state budget. As usual it’s a fiscal policy disaster.
One item that did not make it is recreational marijuana. Assemblyman David DiPietro vlogged that if it became law any gun owner who purchased pot could lose their firearms. His post received way more attention that I thought it would:
Gun groups including NRA getting involved with non-gun issues is bad policy. However, I believe NRA should make a statement about decriminalizing weed at the federal level. No need to get into detailed arguments, just a simple statement that marijuana should be decriminalized so that people cannot be penalized for exorcising their 2A rights.
