Legalization of Recreational Marijuana in New York

Julia Kim

Legalization of marijuana is happening everywhere but New York. Many states are moving towards the legalization of recreational marijuana. New York wants to move forward with the process, but there are many delays and obstacles in the way. Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, had planned to include the legalization of marijuana in the state budget but recently did not get the chance to be able to do so.

However, this isn’t stopping Cuomo or the democrats who want legalization of recreational marijuana. Cuomo plans ahead to step forward with the process. On the other hand, there are many people who don’t want legal marijuana, including counties in Long Island that say they want to opt out of the sales of legal marijuana.

As of right now, no one is sure what’s happening with the legalization of recreational marijuana in New York but, we know for a fact that Cuomo wants to move forward.
