New York Leaders Reach Agreement On Cannabis LegislationMarch 25, 2021
New York lawmakers have reportedly reached a consensus on cannabis legalization. Governor Andrew Cuomo and leaders in the state legislature have been at odds for months over a variety of provisions surrounding legalization, such as the right to grow cannabis in one’s home for personal use as well as a provision for social consumption spaces. Both are now said to be included in the deal.
“It is my understanding that the three-way agreement has been reached and that bill drafting is in the process of finishing a bill that we all have said we support,” State Senator Liz Krueger told Bloomberg yesterday. The bill is set to be taken up next week and sales could begin a year after Cuomo signs it into law.
