Cape to follow state regs on medical marijuana dispensaries

Cape to follow state regs on medical marijuana dispensaries

The candidate and former "Sex and the City" star was first reported stating her support for legalizing the drug at a private fundraiser last week and released a video Wednesday reiterating her stance.

While it is no big secret that the "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon is running for governor of NY.

During the clip, Nixon noted that while Black and white people use marijuana at the same rates, people of color are 4.5 times more likely than their white counterparts to get arrested for the substance, making it virtually legal for one group but not the other.

She closed provocatively: "The simple truth is, for white people, the use of marijuana has effectively been legal, for a long time".

We believe that cannabis producers "represent the next wave of outsized returns for investors" once the halo of legalization in Canada fades. "I think we are actually ahead on [the cannabis legalization issue]", Cuomo said, according to the Daily News.




"There are a lot of good reasons for legalizing marijuana", she said. "You don't need a study to figure out our marijuana laws are disproportionately putting people of color in jail", she shot back on her Twitter account. Though Cuomo once argued that weed was a "gateway drug", he now believes it's a topic worth researching.

A bill approving the use of medical marijuana to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Chronic Pain, sever muscle pain, and glaucoma will now head to state senate.

Even if Nixon doesn't win the nomination, hopefully her campaign will help motivate Cuomo to embrace more progressive ideals, such as marijuana legalization. "The days of making residents jump through hoops are coming to an end", Murphy said in the announcement last month.

TELL US, do you think NY should legalize cannabis?
