New York Is One Step Closer To Legalizing Weed
17 states & Washington D.C. allow use of medical marijuana. New York governor Andrew Cuomo wants to decriminalize marijuana. He would lower the penalty for those caught with a small amount of marijuana, 25 grams to a violation instead of a misdemeanor.
Cuomo has the backing of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. His city spent 75 million dollars on arresting and jailing people carrying small amounts of weed in 2010.
FACT: The U.S. could save 8.7 billion dollars in enforcement expenditures and generate another 8.7 billion dollars if we were to tax it. That’s a lot of green: 17.4 billion dollars.
