The Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo released the statement seeking the opportunity to legalize recreational marijuana in his state. Legalizing weed may support the funds to fight the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic which has largely impacted the economy of the world.
” We will like to legalize adult-use recreational cannabis which will help us raise the revenue and also curb the failed prohibition of weed which has left so many communities of color over-policed and over-incarcerated,” Andrew said.
This step will make New York the 15th state of the USA take this step. As other states are preparing their own recreational market, the New York legalization proposal will ensure the legal sale of weed and weed-related products to anyone over the age of 21.
Only time will tell whether legalizing recreational cannabis will help New York to overcome it’s revenue issues or not.
