New York lawmakers attempted to legalize recreational cannabis through the legislative process several times between 2018 and 2021, but disagreements over tax revenue allocation from cannabis sales prevented legislation from moving forward. The Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act was included in the state budget proposal for 2021. Some members of the New York State Assembly objected to certain elements of the bill, with some preferring to pass their own legislation, the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act, outside of the governor’s office.
