Here is the upshot:
- as of 28 august 2019
- possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana
- in NY state
- will be a misdemeanor punishable by a fine.
Here is a reference to the bill. It closes the public use loophole which has caused such devastation for young men of color. Good on NYS legislature and good on Gov. Cuomo !
This is not a carte blanche to grow, possess, or use any old kind and amount of marijuana you may desire. Act responsibly, please, and don't mess it up for everybody else.
