Cynthia Nixon: Marijuana is "Effectively Legal" For White People

Lawmakers have tried and failed for years but perhaps 2015 is the year medical marijuana comes to Florida

Democratic candidate for governor Cynthia Nixon has outlined her plans for legalizing marijuana in NY in a video, saying the state lags far behind some other states. "The days of making residents jump through hoops are coming to an end", Murphy said in the announcement last month.

Nixon, who is challenging Cuomo in a Democratic primary, said NY should follow the lead of eight other states and end a "key front" in what she called the "racist" war on drugs.

On Wednesday, Cynthia Nixon released a video stating that legalizing marijuana is one of her campaign issues as she runs for governor of NY. 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".

While the Tenth Amendment has allowed much to occur at the state level, there are still many negative implications of the Federal policy to schedule cannabis as a Class 1 drug: most notably the lack of research, the ambiguity around financial services and the refusal of the VA to offer it as an alternative to the harmful opioids that are ravishing our communities.

"The simple truth is, for white people, the use of marijuana has effectively been legal for a long time", she says.

The article reminds us that Boehner was formerly opposed to legalization, though Weld, a moderate, has been a long-time supporter.

Leon County Judge Karen Gievers said that Joseph Redner is entitled under state law to possess, grow and use marijuana for juicing.

P.E.I. medical cannabis advocate Annie MacEachern said the excise tax is in addition to the HST medical patients are already subjected to. Furthermore, Boehner said he has spent years studying the issues facing the criminal justice system in the country, which makes him believe that legalization makes sense now. The amendment, which passed in 2016, legalized medical marijuana in Florida.

The Department of Health's notice of appeal in the case "automatically operates as a stay of the final judgment pending appellate review", lawyers for the state agency wrote.

The study will look at the health impact, criminal justice effect and consequences to NY state resulting from legalization in surrounding states.

Nixon is slated to challenge Cuomo in the Democratic primary on September 13.

Floridians critical of the state's implementation of medical marijuana applauded a circuit court ruling Wednesday that allows a Tampa man to grow his own plants.

Back in NY, the Nixon candidacy is clearly putting more pressure on Cuomo - and represents much more of an insurgent phenomenon than Jersey's Murphy.

In that case, Cathy Jordan and other patients are challenging a state law, passed during a special session past year, that carries out the amendment and, among other things, bans patients from smoking marijuana. The first retail marijuana stores are set to open in MA on July 1.
