New York Governor Wants State to Have Decriminalized Pot in 2013

By / 01.11.13

Now, it seems that change may come to the nation's second-most populous state. In his state of the union address on Wednesday, New York governor Andrew Cuomo not only vowed this year to decriminalize marijuana in the state, he said that it is one of his top priorities this year.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Wednesday that his top priorities in 2013 will include the decriminalization of marijuana possession, one of the most frequent crimes committed in the state that sweeps up thousands of young people, especially minorities, every year.

“It's not fair, it's not right,” Cuomo said. “It must end, and it must end now.”

 

Normally, it goes this way: Marijuana is decriminalized, then it's allowed with a medical card, then, at least in Colorado and Washington, it's totally legalized. A lot of New Yorkers are hoping that's the case here.
