Thank you for your work on the "The Respect State Marijuana Laws Act" Mr. Houston. What, in your opinion, will be the best way for New York to achieve recreational marijuana legalization? We have a viable bill, Liz Krueger wrote our Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act, but Governor Cuomo won't even sign it. New York state spends 6 times as much on it's prisons than CO, New York City is the marijuana arrest capitol of the world, this is an urgent issue for us, but we have no direct democracy initiatives. Is there anything we can do to legalize marijuana in NY short of occupying Albany and NYC City Hall?
