Opinions differ on the chances for passage of a bill that would legalize marijuana in New York State. It was introduced last Wednesday by state Sen. Liz Krueger of Manhattan, shown here in a gathering outside City Hall.
A bill that would legalize recreational marijuana in New York State was introduced last week. The measure would regulate the sale of pot and tax it, treating it similarly to alcohol. Proponents are cautiously optimistic that the governor might see the plan in a favorable light.
