Westchester County Republican Assemblyman Steve Katz was pulled over yesterday morning for speeding and hit with a possession charge when an officer recognized the distinct smell of marijuana. "He was alone and cooperative," said the police, who ticketed him for a small baggie and going 80 in a 65 mph zone. Katz was oddly arrested twice for allegedly mishandling dogs when he worked as a veterinarian, but both cases were dismissed. Last year, he voted against legalizing medical marijuana, although maybe this will be his Portman moment. The assemblyman sits on Assembly committees for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, as well as Higher Education.
What a moron
The lead story on every MSM station starting with the word “Republican” - this will go on for weeks.
What would this have to do with “medical” marijuana? Even the potheads I know laugh when they hear that ridiculous term.
Sounds like a setup. I’ll wait to hear his side.
“What would this have to do with medical marijuana? Even the potheads I know laugh when they hear that ridiculous term.”
The only thing that potheads laugh at are the IDIOTS that think there’s any difference between “medical marijuana” and street week. Just like seat belt (and cell phone) offenses used to be “secondary”, but now are “primary” - medical mj is simply a stepping stone to legalization.
Now we know why, he wanted all of the pot just for himself.
“It’s mine!! All mine!! It’s only legal for me!!”
Probably voted for the recent NY gun control act.
I would’ve thought it would’ve been possession and driving 8 miles an hour...
I remember the Gallagher routine on how people on pot are actually more careful drivers, they will roll down the window and yell out, “I’M CHANGING LANES!”
Succumbing to a vice or weakness and wanting to make it common is two different things.
For instance a homosexual can still see it as not something to be promoted and advanced in a society.
A guy who has a vice of gambling on Saturday night doesn’t have to be pro-gambling in legislation politics.
Someone who hates and fears guns doesn’t have to base his political position on that.
True, I suspect you don’t see heroin addicts going around telling people...”You gotta try this stuff, it’s great!”
Sorry, no setup. He's just another wannabe member of the power-elite. Laws are for the little people.
Drama Queens grow a pair! Ganja is less harmful than booze. The persecution must end.
Higher Ed, huh ?
Tony Weiner was on a House committee that focused on keeping young people safe from internet predators ~ like himself!
Nah, see ya’ll missed the point. He wasn’t opposed to weed. He was opposed to YOU having weed.
Reminds me of the Dennis Leary routine about Keith Richards, “Keith Richards says you shouldn’t do drugs....Keith, we can’t do any drugs, because you already did them all, there’s none left...we have to wait until you die, so we can smoke your ashes.”
exactly, it’s not medicinal, if so, how would you deny it to a child? Might have been their point.
Which would make the liberdopians happy I am sure.
