Nightmare blunt rotations for New York politicians

These elected officials would hate to see certain people at their 420 meetup.

After City & State’s readers said last year that the person they would most want to share a blunt with was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she replied on Twitter: “Is this the new ‘who you’d want to have a beer with.’” And the results of the poll reflected who people thought would be a chill or fun person to hang out with.

On the other end of the spectrum is the nightmare blunt rotation, which is composed of the worst group of people in someone’s eyes to relax with and smoke. In honor of our special report on the legal cannabis industry, here are some nightmare pairings these politicians wouldn’t want to see passing them a joint. Plus see below the photos for some recent submissions from readers.
