Barclay Damon Live: The Cannabis Counselor, With Aleece Burgio—"Cannabis Legalization and Social Equity, Featuring NYS Senator Jeremy Cooney"

This week Aleece interviews Jeremy Cooney, senator representing New York State’s 56th district and co-chair of the NYS Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic & Asian Legislative Caucus’s Marijuana Task Force, about the opposition to legalizing adult-use cannabis in New York State, how the state will move forward, and the timelines and processes associated with the legislation passing on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. Senator Cooney explains the need for tax dollars to be invested in developing THC testing technology, how transitioning cannabis use into a safe, legal space can benefit distressed communities, and how NYS legislators fought for automatic expungement of state-level cannabis possession and use criminal records. Tune in to hear more of Senator Cooney’s perspectives on legalized adult-use cannabis in New York State.
