Mayor Bill de Blasio pounced on Vice President Joe Biden today for comparing New York City’s LaGuardia Airport to “some third world country.”
“Not his finest moment,” remarked the mayor when asked about the comments at an unrelated press conference today at City Hall.
Assemblyman Dick Gottfried isn’t worried about New York going to pot if the governor’s plan to legalize medical marijuana is enacted–because the drug is so easy to obtain on city streets already.
“Anybody who thinks they need to jump through all of those hoops because they want to recreationally use marijuana, you know, they just don’t know what they’re talking about. Anybody who wants to break the law to get marijuana for recreational use can go out on almost any street corner,” Mr. Gottfried said last night, calling in to NY1′s The Call.
