When Is Your Marijuana Legal? | MTV News

Posted May 05, 2019 12:12:52 When Is My Marijuana Legal?: The New York Times reports that if the New York State legislature passes a law legalizing the recreational use of marijuana, it would become legal in New York on August 1.

In a move that would make New York one of only four states in the country to legalize the recreational marijuana market, New York Gov.

Andrew Cuomo announced that his administration will begin issuing licenses to retailers and distributors in September.

The New Yorkers will begin collecting data on the sales of recreational marijuana on April 1, and Cuomo has scheduled a meeting with New York state legislators to discuss the issue at a later date.

However, it’s still unclear if the sales data will be used to create a “Schedule I” listing of drugs, which would make the recreational pot market illegal under federal law.

The new law will also legalize the cultivation, sale and distribution of medical marijuana.

New York is one of the first states to legalize recreational marijuana use, followed by Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska.
