  • Customers 'roughed up&apos during robbery at Halifax marijuana dispensary

In that case, Cathy Jordan and other patients are challenging a state law, passed during a special session previous year, that carries out the amendment and, among other things, bans patients from smoking marijuana. She emphasized that 80 percent of New Yorkers arrested for cannabis use are black or Latino, "despite the fact that whites and people of color use marijuana at roughly the same rates".

She said the consequences of their encounters with the court system hinder chances for good jobs and housing and can lead to deportation for undocumented immigrants. Is the state bringing in new industries for bolstering the economy during the inevitable decline of the petroleum industry?

Nixon said if there was more "political courage" in Albany, the drug already would be legal. "Isn't it time we legalize it for everyone else?"

Industry analysts are viewing Boehner's decision as a watershed event that effectively announces that marijuana has finally gone mainstream and that investment in the sector could balloon in the coming years.

"The Constitution says what it says, and the judge recognized what I've been saying all along: The Department of Health and the Legislature can't take away the rights that the Constitution gives you", Redner said in a statement Wednesday. One in four Americans (26%) expect that legalization of marijuana will help to solve the opioid epidemic, according to the BDS Analytics study. "That's what the amendment says, and we expect our state government to defend the Constitution, not try to judge shop their way out of it".

Nixon is slated to challenge Cuomo in the Democratic primary on September 13. "The best way to forge consensus is on facts rather than opinions, stereotypes, past experiences", Cuomo said. Boehner said that his perspective on the drug changed after a friend used medical marijuana to successfully treat his chronic pain.

TELL US, do you think NY should legalize cannabis? Meanwhile, other states are moving forward with their plans.

Forty stores are expected to open this year and another 40 by July of next year.
