Michael Bloomberg opposes Marijuana Legalization
I hope this guy wastes a ton of money on his vanity campaign.


Former New York City Mayor—and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate—Michael Bloomberg called efforts to legalize marijuana "perhaps the stupidest thing anybody has ever done."

Speaking at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, on Tuesday, Bloomberg said on the subject, according to WBNG-TV:

"We have a different kind of problem in America, for example. Last year, in 2017, 72,000 Americans [overdosed] on drugs. In 2018, more people than that are OD-ing on drugs, have OD'd on drugs. And today, incidentally, we are trying to legalize another addictive narcotic, which is perhaps the stupidest thing anybody has ever done. We've got to fight that, and that's another thing that Bloomberg Philanthropies will work on it in public health."

Re: Michael Bloomberg opposes Marijuana Legalization
The overwhelming theme is authoritarian control.
Don’t drink big sodas, don’t smoke weed, don’t voice your opinions or exercise your constitutional rights...

How is this even considered?

I hope he spends millions to have the country tell him to fuck off.

Re: Michael Bloomberg opposes Marijuana Legalization
He should not be president. he doesn't have the intelligence to know the difference between a drug (something that has changed form through chemicals) and a naturally grown plant.
