Anti-Drug Lawmaker Arrested And Charged With Drug Possession

Via WLWT reports:

Assemblyman Steve Katz was charged after a Thursday morning traffic stop, according to a report by the Albany Times Union.

Police said the 59-year-old Katz was driving 80 mph on a toll road near Coeymans, N.Y.

State troopers said they smelled marijuana and found a small bag of the drug.

Katz serves on the Assembly’s Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Committee and its Higher Education Committee.

The Times Union reported that Katz voted against a bill that would have legalized medical marijuana last year.

Katz ran unsuccessfully for state Senate last year.

SMH!! Wait a minute, we find it hard to believe he was stoned and driving 80MPH. Now, if they popped him for under the minimum speed limit…
