Deal To legalize Recreational Marijuana Announced By State Of New York

By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – A deal to legalize recreational marijuana use for adults 21 and over has been formally agreed by Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York state lawmakers.

The governor’s office announced this on Sunday, via a statement, which said that the change could net an additional $350 million in annual tax revenues and create tens of thousands of jobs.

The draft law would allow adults 21 and over to purchase cannabis and grow plants for personal consumption at home, with a plan to divert some funds to drug treatment and education.

Once the underlying legislation passes — Cuomo’s Democratic party holds strong majorities in both legislative chambers — New York will join 14 other states and the District of Columbia in permitting cannabis use.
