Legal Marijuana In NY Would Do More Good Than Harm, State Says

https://patch.com/new-york/midhudsonvalley/s/ggvt1/legal-marijuana-in-ny-would-do-more-good-than-harm-state-says?utm_source=alert-breakingnews&utm_medium=email&utm_term=weather&utm_campaign=alert

Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said last month that the report would back legalization.

Marijuana is legal for recreational use in nine states, and several political figures have gotten behind legalization — including Cynthia Nixon, Cuomo's Democratic primary opponent in this year's gubernatorial race.

With a potential value of up to $3.5 billion, New York would be one of the nation's largest regulated marijuana markets if the drug were legalized here, the report says. It estimates taxes on marijuana could generate as much as $677.7 million in revenue in the first year.

1. A primary governor's choice in NY

Nixon YES
Cuomo NO

Nixon says she'll make it legal, Cuomo for years has opposed it.

7. And once Cuomo wins the primary

he will, yet again, oppose the “adult use of cannabis.” Does C. Nixon have a shot? Sure. Will she? Very doubtful.
