Cuomo today announced a proposal to legalize cannabis



"Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a proposal to legalize and create a comprehensive system to oversee and regulate #cannabis in New York as part of the 2021 State of the State. Under the Governor's proposal, a new Office of Cannabis Management would be created to oversee the new adult-use program, as well as the State's existing medical and cannabinoid hemp programs. Additionally, an equitable structure for the adult-use market will be created by offering licensing opportunities and assistance to entrepreneurs in communities of color who have been disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs. Once fully implemented, legalization is expected to generate more than $300 million in tax revenue."


I'm hopeful, but this broken record has been playing on repeat for years...
