Standing Up For Pot

Tomorrow at or shortly after ten AM, I will be testifying before the New York City Council in favor of a medical marijuana bill. Like the referendums that have passed in various states, the City Council bill, if it became law, would have to defer to federal law. But these efforts show the degree of serious popular support–i.e., more than just telling a pollster–for change.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if NYC, after demonizing one weed, un-demonized another?
