New study confirms cannabis legalization reduces violent crime

City's pot shop location determined

"I believe it's time for NY to follow the lead of eight other states and D.C. and legalize the recreational use of marijuana", Nixon said in the video. But now, he's no longer skeptical, and the condition is "something we see in our ER several times a week, if not on a daily basis".

On Wednesday, Cynthia Nixon released a video stating that legalizing marijuana is one of her campaign issues as she runs for governor of NY.

During the clip, Nixon noted that while Black and white people use marijuana at the same rates, people of color are 4.5 times more likely than their white counterparts to get arrested for the substance, making it virtually legal for one group but not the other.

Boehner also said the move would curtail federal-state conflict on marijuana policies.

Industry analysts are viewing Boehner's decision as a watershed event that effectively announces that marijuana has finally gone mainstream and that investment in the sector could balloon in the coming years.

While Nixon has spoken out about recreational legalization in NY before, this discussion on how it correlates to the issue of racial inequality is particularly refreshing and needed. Lawmakers have been trying to hammer out regulations for legalized marijuana since voters chose to go legal in 2016.

At 52 percent, I don't think you're there yet.

The study will look at the health impact, criminal justice effect and consequences to NY state resulting from legalization in surrounding states. It sets an effective 20 percent tax rate on marijuana products, gives ME residents a priority for commercial licenses, puts the Department of Administrative and Financial Services in charge of Maine's recreational and medical marijuana systems, and sets safety standards.

Faced with opposition from drug legalization advocates, California lawmakers backed away Tuesday from a proposal to adopt a "zero tolerance" policy on motorists under age 21 who drive after using marijuana. "I'm trying to depoliticize the issue", Cuomo said.

Nixon is slated to challenge Cuomo in the Democratic primary on September 13.

The agreement provides the Israeli police with the necessary resources to monitor medical marijuana exports so that it doesn't fall into the hands of criminals. Meanwhile, other states are moving forward with their plans.

One of the province's first cannabis retail stores will open on Wellington County's doorstep.
