Embattled New York Introduces New Cannabis Legalization Bill

The bill includes the establishment of a regulatory body for all cannabis-related products

After the failure to include legalized adult use cannabis in the New York State budget earlier this year, sponsors of the legislation say they are introducing a new bill that they hope stands a better chance at becoming law.

Democratic Manhattan Senator Liz Krueger, who is a longtime supporter of legalizing marijuana says “the new bill incorporates some of the ideas the governor and legislature came up with when they talked about the issue during the budget talks,” according to Karen DeWitt of WAMC radio.

“We’ve attempted to take all of the negotiated agreements that took place during budget negotiations and expand our bill,” said Krueger.

The bill includes the establishment of a single government unit to manage and regulate all cannabis-related products, including hemp and CBD products, which are ubiquitous but are unregulated.
