New York Decriminalizes Marijuana After failing to pass a bill that legalized recreational use, New York has decriminalized marijuana. The new law reduces the charge for possession of less than two ounces of weed from a misdemeanor to a fine and promises to expunge the criminal records of almost 160,000 people. Governor Andrew Cuomo says many of those people are black. "Communities of color have been disproportionately impacted by laws governing marijuana for far too long, and today we are ending this injustice once and for all," he said when signing the legislation last month. Earlier this year, Cuomo championed legislation to legalize recreational use of marijuana, but it was shot down by lawmakers in June. Kevin Miller asks the KIDO Talk Radio audience the following questions: Does it make sense to decriminalize weed but not make it legal? Should the federal government just legalize it across the board? ; 7:35 a.m. – Fox News' Tonya J Powers with the latest on the $17-billion dollar opioid case against Johnson & Johnson ; 8 a.m.- Author of, "Operation Drain the Swamp", Adam Andrzejewski says the SBA is lending to some pretty big fish ; 8:35 a.m. – Fox News Radio's Jeff Monosso says an old face is back in Arizona.
