Bloomberg is ok with weed, just not big sugary drinks.

Mayor Bloomberg has backed a plan by Andrew Cuomo to not arrest people caught in possession of small amounts of marijuana during “stop and frisk” searches in NYC. He stated it strikes a good balance because it would still allow police to arrest people caught smoking Marijuana in public, but not for simply possessing it.

Recently Bloomberg moved to ban large sugary drinks, a move that has sparked protest from some and support from others.

The Bloomberg administration doesn’t care if you are high, they just don’t want you to be high and fat! Which is kind of odd, doesn’t marijuana cause the munchies?
