New York State To Take Another Look Into Legalizing Marijuana « CBS New York
With Massachusetts legalizing marijuana and New Jersey considering it, Cuomo may have a change of mind to avoid losing revenue to neighboring states, reports CBS2’s Marcia Kramer. Last month New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced plans to expand his state’s classifications of medical-use marijuana. Murphy had made legalizing marijuana part of his campaign for office, including legalized recreational marijuana in New Jersey. In an odd twist, the governor is getting support from New York City’s First Lady Chirlane McCray.
Both de Blasio and his wife have copped to smoking weed when they were younger, but the mayor is still on the fence when it comes to making it legal. NYPD Chief of Detectives Bob Boyce was asked Friday about McCray’s position. Many people Kramer spoke with Friday were admittedly on the fence. Marijuana became a billion dollar business after Colorado legalized weed, bringing in hundreds of millions in new tax revenue. New York’s study is expected to be completely by fall.

Cheech and Chong Say ‘Pot’s Over’ Now That Republicans Like John Boehner Are Supporting Marijuana Reform
The age of marijuana’s rebellious and cool status is officially over, according to Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. It all started when late-night host Colbert asked Marin and Chong what they thought about the push for legalized pot now that Republicans like former House Speaker John Beohner-a longtime opponent of marijuana reform-were starting to support pot’s legalization. The company grows and sells legal marijuana and services 11 states. According to 68-year-old Boehner, he decided to join the company in effort to get veterans legal access to the drug. Although Beohner’s newfound acceptance of marijuana raised eyebrows, his sentiments regarding the medical value of the plant falls in line with a growing number of Americans who believe patients and adults should be able to legally consume cannabis.
A Pew Research Center report in January found 61 percent of U.S. adults were in favor of legal marijuana.

A bill to legalize marijuana, proposed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has been passed by the Senate through its third and final reading. The legislation – C-45 – has already been passed by the House of Commons, but will go back for one final vote on Senate amendments before being sent to the Governor General for Royal Assent. Once the law takes effect, the possession and cultivation of personal amounts of marijuana will be legal for those 18 and older. The law authorizes licensed marijuana businesses to sell marijuana and marijuana products, and also allows online sales. Passage of the law makes Canada the second country, following Uruguay, to officially legalize marijuana.
A C.D. Howe Institute report released last year found that legal marijuana will bring Canada around $675 million in annual tax revenue. >View original articleAuthor: Anthony Martinelli.
