The NYS Budget is the main topic of conversation in Albany these days and the conversation is all over the place. Gov. Cuomo says marijuana legalization is unlikely to be in the budget , while Sen. Liz Krueger, Chair of the Sen. Finance Committee and the sponsor of the Senate measure to legalize the substance still classified as Schedule 1 drug – drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse – says “I don’t know why he said that…up until now he’s made clear he wants to negotiate marijuana in the budget.” Sen. Krueger, perhaps the pushback from sheriffs, district attorneys and parent-teacher associations is making it clearer that collecting tax dollars, should marijuana be legalized, may not be the panacea elected officials want, in fact, it is most likely a modern day Pandora’s Box filled with unforeseen problems equal to those Zeus knew Pandora would unleash when she opened the wedding gift Hephaistos sent to her and Epimetheus. Do we really want to test the fictional Pandora’s Box when we know the consequences of Schedule 1 drugs?

Speaker Pelosi is showing the strain of being Speaker…one day she stands with radical socialists Ilhan Omar; the next day Speaker Pelosi is questioning how to pay for Medicaid for all . The Twilight Zone world of Washington, D. C. never ceases to amaze me.
