Did you know that there is already a bill in the New York State Legislature to legalize and regulate marijuana for recreational use? Introduced by Sen.

New York was the 23rd state to legalize medical marijuana and many feel it is time for it to take the next step.

That is why NY Grows is launching its campaign to help guide our state toward a modern and progressive marijuana policy. Click here to learn more about why New York will be the next state to legalize.
