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…
