(Former pot smoker) Mayor Bloomberg calls medical marijuana a "hoax," opposes recreational legalization

Bloomberg made his case against medical and recreational pot this morning on the John Gambling radio show:

“Yeah, right, medical, come on,” said Bloomberg. “There’s no medical. This is one of the great hoaxes of all times.” …

Last year, in Bloomberg’s New York, the NYPD stopped 26,000 people for marijuana, and arrested 5,000 of them. It’s fair to say that Mayor Bloomberg’s “personal army” negatively affected far more lives in far more serious ways than are affected by consuming even today’s strong marijuana.
