New York may be next:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo Calls For Legalization Of Recreational Marijuana In New York

Where is the United States Congress? Seems to me that it's High Time for congress to act.

This is one of the issues where I agree with liberals (Democrats) and disagree with conservatives (Republicans).

And that reminds me:

One of the things I don't understand* about the Republican position is how they are against laws restricting guns but not against laws restricting marijuana. And vice versa for the Democrats. Seems like an obvious inconsistency to me. I am against laws restricting either.

Denver voters to weigh decriminalization of magic mushrooms

I suppose arguers of the "slippery slope" argument might point to this as evidence.


But also, supposedly the "most harmful drug" is also the most legal one:
