Letter to the Editor: LEGAL POT? NY Should Beware Of Pitfalls

LEGAL POT?

NY Should Beware Of Pitfalls

Editor’s Note: This appeared in YourAAA, the Jan./Feb. edition of the Automobile Association of America/Northeast. Our state Legislature may legalize recreational marijuana as soon as this month.

The legalization of marijuana is gaining popularity within the U.S. A recent Gallup poll found that 66 percent of Americans support marijuana legalization. More than half the states have legalized marijuana use to some extent.
Of the six states in the AAA Northeast footprint, only Massachusetts has legalized the recreational use of marijuana. But there have been recent pushes to legalize it in both New York and New Jersey.
