ALBANY – New York State will study whether it’s plausible to legalize Marijuana for recreational use as neighboring states move ahead with it, Governor Cuomo made the announcement Tuesday.
The governor called on lawmakers to approve funding for a feasibility study as part of his annual state budget address, where he laid out his spending proposal for the coming year.
“Look at the health impact, the economic impact, the state of the law,” said Gov. Cuomo.
Cuomo’s announcement comes after at least nine states and Washington DC have legalized small amounts of Marijuana for recreational use.
