New York Mayor Bill de Blasio also reacted to the state legislature legalizing cannabis and said the new law will “uplift communities of color previously harmed by criminalization.”
“I am thrilled this legislation has achieved much of what we pushed for with that effort by prioritizing licenses for those negatively impacted by criminalization, expunging convictions for past marijuana charges and new social equity initiatives that will help communities most harmed by past marijuana laws,” he said in a written statement. “I thank Assembly Speaker Heastie, Senate Majority Leader Stewart Cousins, Assembly Majority Leader Peoples-Stokes and Senator Krueger for fighting for justice through this important legislation.” (New York Daily News)

New York Moves To Legalize Cannabis
New York state lawmakers recently reached an agreement to legalize recreational marijuana in one of the world’s biggest consumer markets, officially bringing the multi-billion dollar industry to the Empire State.
“A percentage of revenue that is raised will get invested into the communities where the people who suffered mass incarceration come from and still live in many cases,” said Assemblywoman Crystal D. Peoples-Stokes, a Democrat who has spearheaded the legalization effort in the lower chamber for years. “For me this is a lot more than about raising revenue: It’s about investing in the lives of the people that have been damaged.” (New York Times)
