Here in the NYC laws relating to small quantities of mj for personal use are already a joke. You can walk down the street smoking a blunt with no hassle. Entire apartment building floors smell of it. Stores sell accessories for using it, plus t-shirts celebrating it. These laws are just codifying the real status quo. Pot just doesn’t have enough negative effects to make people care. People get more pissed off about public boozing and regular cigarettes.
