New York passes one shocking law that allow youth to use drug. Yes you heard it right, according to this new law now adults over the age of 21 years can now possess and use well known drug marijuana. Not only this now youth can consume it even in public under a legalisation bill . Let us share that this bill signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, though legal sales of recreational-use cannabis won't start for an estimated 18 months until regulations are set. Passed after several years of stalled efforts, the measure makes New York the 16th state to legalise adult use of the drug, though South Dakota's measure is in legal limbo.
For your information let us share that New York becomes the second-most populous state, after California, to legalise recreational marijuana. Legalisation backers hope the Empire State will add momentum and set an example with its efforts to redress the inequities of a system that has locked up people of color for marijuana offenses at disproportionate rates. Melissa Moore, New York state director of the Drug Policy Alliance said that "By placing community reinvestment, social equity, and justice front and center, this law is the new gold standard for reform efforts nationwide,"
