USA. New York Proposes Cannabis Legalization
New York could soon be joining the rest of the USA legal cannabis jurisdictions thanks to Senator Liz Krueger who has just presented the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation act for the 2015 agenda in New York. If approved it would allow over-18’s to possess, grow and enjoy cannabis. New York has seen various cannabis initiatives in recent months, with the medical cannabis movement making some progress for compassionate use of cannabis for specified conditions. USA cannabis campaigners have seen the East-coast states to be traditionally slower to enact cannabis legalisation than the rest of the country. But with political and public support growing for cannabis legalisation it seem that it is only a matter of time before New York passes its own legalisation laws.
