Cuomo Signs Bill Decriminalizing Marijuana Use In New York

Proponents of legalization still see decrim as insufficient, since users still wouldn’t have a legal source for marijuana, allowing criminal organizations to still profit off it.

Ten states and Washington, DC, have legalized marijuana, though DC and Vermont don’t allow sales.

Illinois will become the 11th state to legalize once Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker signs the recently passed legalization bill into law. Another 14 states have only decriminalized.

Sounds like too little, too late. Decrim is so tired. Time to legalize altogether, IMO.

Thanks for sharing @JoeGrow

Do you think legalization is on the horizon for the Empire State?

My position is that criminalization itself was unlawful - since its inception. Same with prohibition.
