Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes and Senator Liz Krueger Sponsor Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act

Assemblymember Crystal Peoples-Stokes and Senator Liz Krueger on Wednesday will host a public forum to discuss the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act, a bill that would legalize the production, distribution, and use of marijuana for adults over the age of 21.

This bill will effectively end marijuana prohibition in New York State and would create a system to tax and regulate marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol.

This discussion comes at a time when marijuana reform has gained unprecedented momentum. In the United States, Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington D.C. have legalized marijuana for adults and national support for legalization has reached 58 percent.

Despite all of the progress around the country, New York State and Buffalo residents, continue to suffer from disproportionate enforcement of prohibition in communities of color, with thousands of arrests every year.

What: Press Conference re: Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act & Public Forum to follow

Tuesday, February 3 Forum Will Address Concerns with Proposed Regulations, Including Access for Low Income Patients

Patients, community members, providers and elected officials will join together on Tuesday, February 3, to discuss New York’s medical marijuana law and provide community feedback on the state’s recently introduced draft regulations that will shape New York’s medical marijuana program.

The event is being held at Hostos Community College in the Bronx, the poorest county in the state, where providers have raised significant concerns that the medical marijuana program could leave low income communities behind. The event is free and open to the public.

The forum is being hosted by BOOM!Health, VOCAL New York, Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), and Compassionate Care NY, along with other community organizations and elected officials. It will educate the community on the draft regulations released in December and provide a space for the community to discuss what is needed to improve the system to ensure any qualified patient -- regardless of ability to pay -- can access medical marijuana services.
