Anti-marijuana New York assemblyman busted for weed possession

(RAW STORY)   A Republican lawmaker in New York who has a record of voting against medical marijuana legalization has been arrested and charged with possession of marijuana.

State police said that a suspicious odor was noticed in Assemblyman Steve Katz’s vehicle when they pulled him over for driving around 80 mph in a 75 mph zone at around 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

“After noting the odor of marijuana, a New York State Trooper found Katz in possession of a small bag of marijuana,” a statement from state police said, according to the Times Union.

Katz was given an appearance ticket for having less than 25 grams and is scheduled to appear in Coeymans Town Court on March 8. He also faces charges for speeding.

Last year, the assemblyman voted against a bill that would have legalized medical marijuana in New York.

Katz’ office said that he was expected to release a statement later on Friday.

  • Typical.

  • I am sooooo glad he got popped. it shows the "do as I say not as I do" logic.

    He wants to get HIGH and drive fast, while a cancer or AIDS patient like myself gets full on penalties for any attempt to have a supply that will keep the pain at ease.

    taking over 600 pills a month sucks, THC helps prevent vomitting and promotes appetite. I gained 40 lbs I lost from wasting.

    Shame on Katz. I hope you acquiesce and promote Medical/recreational use federally.

    otherwise auto-erotic asphyxiation in panties would be great!!!!!!

    for Katz that is…….

  • These politicians are pretty much a mirror image of their public persona. The ultra-anti gay types are having homosexual sex at freeway rest stops. The ultra-anti drug types are smoking pot and snorting coke behind closed doors. The anti-pedophilia types are buggering boys and girls every chance they get.

    The second thing these hypocrites have in common is that they all have their hands out. The best government you can buy anywhere.

    Had enough yet?
