New Yorkers are one step closer to legalizing marijuana. Governor Cuomo has published an updated version of his plan, which provides for mitigation of penalties for the illegal sale of “weed” and outlines a program for the use of tax revenues to the treasury.

Regarding this money, he does not agree with the legislature. Disputes over this have been going on for three years now. Legislators have advocated that the revenues could benefit communities hardest hit by the rigors of the marijuana prosecution. The governor stood for control of the proceeds from the sale by the state administration. But now he says he is ready to approve the creation of a special fund of $ 100 million, which can be used by disproportionately offended communities.

The biggest changes in his plan relate to distribution. The last option contains a proposal to organize a delivery system. True, the local authorities have the right not to undertake such services.

If the plans to liberalize marijuana use are adopted, it could generate up to $ 300 million in additional revenue for the state.
