Cuomo May Try To Close The Budget Gap Is Through Rec Marijuana

01.21.20 | Bill Price

Today, Governor Cuomo will be laying out his fiscal plan for the Empire State when he gives his budget address.

One way the governor may try and close the $6 billion budget gap is through the legalization and taxation of recreational marijuana.

Buffalo Democratic state Senator Tim Kennedy says legalized pot is long overdue.

Pro-family groups say legalizing weed will end-up costing New York state more down the road.

The latest Siena College poll shows 54% of New Yorkers support legalizing recreational pot while 40% are against it.
