Medical Marijuana Advocates in New York Renew Push For Legalization
It seems that, as of late, a lot more people are opening their minds to the idea of legalizing medical marijuana. There are a myriad of benefits and every day more and more politicians seem to be considering the voices of the voters and reviewing their demands for legal pot. With that being said, there are a few states that are reintroducing the possibility of medical marijuana on their next ballot and the positive economic impact just might appeal to some of the more right wing voters. Among those states is New York.
New York voters have the right idea; they realize that the legalization of medical marijuana could create hundreds of millions of dollar each year which could in turn bail them out of their ever growing debt. New York State Senator Diane Savino has stated that she would like to see New York become the 19th state to legalize medical marijuana. With the devastation that hurricane Sandy has caused; new light has been shed on the prospect of medical marijuana. Over $1 billion dollars in debt can be accounted for because of the hurricane, and it seems that the legalization of medical marijuana might just be the ticket to ensuring prosperity.
