Tell NY Legislature to Take Pot Out of the Budget

We Don't Need to Rush Into a Public Health Disaster

Tell your New York State legislators to keep recreational marijuana legalization out of the budget. The public health impacts are too large to risk a hasty process. The marijuana industry completely controls the regulators in legalized states, where we see routine decisions that benefit the industry and harm the public. Altria (formerly Phillip Morris, maker of Marlboro cigarettes) has already invested $1.8 billion in the Candadian marijuana industry, and is waiting in the wings. New York doesn't need another addiction-for-profit industry placing profits ahead of public health.
