With the Health subcommittee of the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce holding hearings on cannabis last week, and Presidential candidates like Pete Buttigieg finding a work around the legalization question in the idea to revamp the criminal justice system, could there be a domino effect happening in 2020?
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) included marijuana legalization in his budget proposal on Tuesday. A new poll shows that voter support for ending cannabis prohibition is at its highest level ever in the state.
According to the new proposal, New York stands to receive $20 million in revenue for the 2021 fiscal year and $63 million in 2022, according to the governor’s projections. By 2025, the amount is expected to rise to $188 million.
