NY State Marijuana Hearings This Fall

NY State Marijuana Hearings This Fall NY’s Legislature has announced four NY State marijuana hearings this Fall.  I will attend them and report back anything of interest.  This is a great sign that legalization is on the fast track to becoming a reality.  The Governor has strongly signaled his support by releasing the study that concluded it wasn’t a case of if but when and how to do the legalization.  Now the legislature is dipping their foot in the water too. The NY State marijuana hearings will cover topics including economic regulations, criminal justice policy, public health concerns and diversity in the marijuana industry. Hearing Topics Dates have not yet been set for the NY State marijuana hearings.  The announcement on the hearings was made by: Assembly Codes Committee Chair Joseph Lentol (considers issues and legislation regarding the State’s criminal and civil justice system); Health Committee Chair Richard Gottfried (issues of public health); Governmental Operations Committee Chair Crystal Peoples-Stokes (The issue areas of the Committee include: governmental reform, human rights, rights of individuals with disabilities, Minority and Women owned Businesses) and; Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Committee Chair Linda B.

Governor Marijuana Cuomo

Governor Marijuana Cuomo Governor Marijuana Cuomo of New York has taken the next step in marijuana legalization.  Governor Marijuana Cuomo, after a major pivot on the topic, gong from “gateway drug” to compassionate legalization is all in.  After releasing the study that said it’s not if, but when marijuana should be legalized, Governor Marijuana Cuomo has announced the creation of a working group on marijuana.  In truth, its just another excuse for a press release which this Governor has made a science of. It is meant to send a message to voters who might be thinking of voting for his opponent Cynthia Nixon of Sex and the City fame.  Governor Cuomo and marijuana are a new partnership to help ensure his re-election landslide (inexplicable.) However, it also means that the state now has someone (the Governor’s Counsel) responsible for drafting an actual proposed law.  As someone who watches New York state politics closely, this tells me that the Governor is looking to push a bill in January when the legislative session opens up again.  Since that is after the election, he is going to drive this thing hard to get as close to legalization as he can quickly. … 

New York Marijuana Legalization Study 1 of 3

New York’s Marijuana Legalization Study 1 of 3 I finally got a chance to read New York’s marijuana legalization study released earlier this month.  It was better than I had expected.  I thought the study was going to be a lot of political hay but there was some good information there.  It’s a big report so I will report on the findings over a few blogs.  Today, I will cover the study’s preparation, some of the definitions in the report  and the health issues covered in the report.  In my next couple of blogs, I will cover criminal justice and public safety, economic considerations, youth and education and implementation. The title of the report is the NYS Assessment of the Potential Impact of Regulated Marijuana in NYS.  First – lets get this out of the way.  The study concludes that it is not a question of if marijuana should be legalized but how marijuana should be legalized responsibly.  The positive effects of legalization outweigh the potential negative impacts. The report includes analysis based on what other surrounding states and Canada are doing and how that impacts what NY should do about marijuana legalization.  This might be the most…
