The stink of marijuana in New York City is keeping tourists away

Marijuana has become the unofficial new scent of New York City, and it’s not just European tennis players who dislike it. Visitors to the city are equally disgusted by the pervasive smell.

Let’s face it, the vast majority of rational New Yorkers share the same sentiment.

According to a recent article on the front page of Friday’s New York Post

, the pungent smell of marijuana seems to be everywhere in the city’s five boroughs. Even high-end establishments like Nobu 57 and Saks Fifth Avenue now have the unmistakable odor of a college dorm room. Commuters on the subway’s 123 line are also not immune, as they have to contend with the scent of CBD emanating from the smoke of nearby marijuana users.

It’s hard to ignore the fact that the US Open in Flushing Meadows has become a hub for drug dealing. The prevalence of drug use and sales is alarming, and it’s not uncommon to see people openly buying and using drugs throughout the event. It’s a concerning issue that needs to be addressed, as it not only puts attendees at risk but also tarnishes the reputation of the event. It’s time for the organizers to take action and increase security measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all those attending.

During her first-round match at the Grand Slam this week, Greek tennis player Maria Sakkari was reportedly distracted by an unfamiliar scent. Sakkari told reporters that she smelled something strange during the game, which may have affected her focus and ultimately led to her loss. She mentioned the incident in an interview, and it has since gained attention from the media and fans alike.

The eighth-ranked player in the world couldn’t help but chuckle as he confessed, “It was definitely weed. The scent was so unmistakable.”

In a rather candid statement, Alexander Zverev, the ace tennis player from Germany, made a reference to the scent on Court 17, comparing it to that of Snoop Dogg’s living room. The statement was a humorous take on the strong smell that lingered in the air on the court. Zverev’s witty remark added a light-hearted touch to the otherwise serious game of tennis.

When it comes to partying, we often associate Europeans with being more relaxed and liberal than Americans. However, this time around, we have managed to surprise them all with our wild antics.

Unique, one-of-a-kind.

Since the reopening of NYC to international tourists, many visitors have been taken aback by our unpleasant odor. While they may have been accustomed to the smell of rotting garbage during our scorching summers, it is the pungent aroma of marijuana that tends to make them feel nauseous.

My friend from London recently shared with me a brief summary of his trip.

“He expressed that the enchantment has vanished,” he stated.

As someone who works in the theater industry, he was disheartened to discover that Times Square, once a bustling urban paradise, has now devolved into a grimy and unpleasant gathering place filled with drugs and crime. This was revealed in an article by the New York Post, which stated that Times Square has become a “sh-thole.”

As with most New Yorkers, he too was dismayed by the persistent aroma of marijuana that permeates the streets of NYC, akin to the misty haze from the cartoon, “Scooby-Doo.”

As he spoke, I could sense the passion in his voice. He said, “The scent is so intoxicating that I avoid going to the city.” It was clear that the aroma had a profound impact on him, and he didn’t want to compromise on his love for it.

The pervasive odor of lawlessness in New York City has become a source of frustration for many residents. However, most people are hesitant to voice their opinions on the matter, often fearing backlash from their progressive peers. It’s unfortunate that common sense seems to be a rare commodity in a city that prides itself on its diversity and inclusivity.

Kathy Hochul and Eric Adams, along with Gov. Cheech and Mayor Chong, have not done much to curb the proliferation of illegal pot shops. Their nonchalant attitude towards the issue has only added fuel to the fire. In fact, in an interview with High Times, Adams even encouraged people to “enjoy themselves, light up, but most importantly – spend some money.” This lack of action and disregard for the law has only contributed to the problem.

Illegal cannabis shops have proliferated in New York.

In recent months, Mayor Harold and Gov. Kumar have shifted their stance and are now taking a more aggressive approach towards illegal activities. They have made it clear that they will not tolerate illicit activities and are threatening landlords with hefty fines of at least $10,000 if they rent their properties to illegal weed sellers.

I’m sorry to say that it appears that things aren’t going as planned, my friends.

During a recent visit to town, another British visitor expressed confusion about the prevalence of new shops and delis that were openly operating in plain sight of the public.

“I am too! And so is everyone else!”

If you’re looking for a unique experience, come to the East Village, which happens to be my neighbourhood. Here, you’ll find that buying a joint is easier than getting a bagel. It’s a testament to the vibrant culture of the area, where you can find all kinds of interesting things.

The politicians in New York who lean towards the left side of the political spectrum tend to demonstrate a particular fondness for being self-righteous without really backing it up with any concrete actions. They may advocate for the legalization of marijuana or open borders for migrants, or even support congestion pricing, but when the inevitable negative consequences materialize, they are quick to shirk responsibility. This attitude of hypocrisy and empty rhetoric is a source of frustration for many in the city.

As our city continues to grow taller, it may slowly lose its appeal to tourists. Its position on their list of preferred destinations may start to decline.
