Bloomberg, in Aspen, rails against legal weed

February 7, 2015

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has sharply criticized Colorado's decision to legalize marijuana and called it a terrible idea.

Bloomberg said at a meeting at the Aspen Institute on Friday that marijuana is hurting the developing minds of children. He admitted to smoking a joint in the 1960s, but he said the drug is stronger, more accessible and more damaging today.
