"Yeah, right, medical, come on," said Bloomberg. "There's no medical. This is one of the great hoaxes of all times."
The mayor has admitted to smoking weed in the past, and enjoying it, but that was a long time ago.
"The bottom line is, I'm told marijuana is much stronger today than it was 20 or 30 years ago," [Bloomberg said].
Bloomberg's opposition to medical and recreational marijuana is two-fold: first, his belief that the drug is stronger now.
"And number two, drug dealers have families to feed," he said. "If they can't sell marijuana, they'll sell something else. And the something else is gonna be worse. And, the push to legalize this is just wrongheaded."
"If you think about it, they say, 'Oh well it's not gonna hurt anybody, it doesn't lead to dependency,'" he continued. "Of course it does. You can argue about recreational things, but it's a very slippery path."
So the title question is my first question.
My second question is do you think that marijuana has medicinal effects?

Mayor Bloomberg has his head up his ass. I hope to god he never decides to run for the presidency. We have a big enough asshat in there now.
