The whole world is waking up from the nightmare of decades of cannabis prohibition, a policy based on straight-up racism, a tool of social control that criminalizes millions of people for no reason, deprives people of their right to grow their own medicine and their choice as to how to heal themselves and consolidates power in toxic industries. All around us the walls are falling but New York remains stuck in the past, with high rates of arrests for personal possession and a new medical cannabis law so limited that it’s useless. There is a real possibility to make full legalization happen in New York this year…if the people demand it from their government.
