The report has also touched upon the tangent of the economic implications of legalization. Without furnishing any numbers, the report maintains that legalization will help in creating more jobs and increasing the state’s revenue stream.  

In the last section of the report, the implications of legalization in neighboring states have also been discussed. According to the department’s assessment, more residents will travel interstate to get legal stuff. The report has also quoted law enforcement data from the nearby counties where there has been an increase in marijuana-related arrests. So, failing to legalize cannabis would not only deprive the state of tax revenues, it would also result in a wave of criminalization in the bordering areas 

Different surveys suggest that the majority of New Yorkers support legalization. Incumbent governor Cuomo didn’t have such proactive approach towards cannabis. However, the progressive opponent with a really distinguishing policy for cannabis has forced him to change his stance.  Many notable local lawmakers also have a really progressive approach towards cannabis. All these developments are giving cannabis activists hope that the strain would soon become legal for adult-use in New York.
