Comments

Regarding the MRTA: “Today, we are putting an end to the devastating impacts of marijuana prohibition and ensuring an equitable and diverse industry in our state for adult-use marijuana by passing the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA). This bill responsibly regulates the adult-use marijuana market, improves New York’s medical marijuana program, and directs new revenues and resources to Black and Brown communities, who have been historically harmed by its criminalization. I proudly voted for this legislation because racial and economic justice are at its core." 3/30/21
