its gonna smell like pure weed in the streets of NY this summer

from my past entries,
you know i’m not good with smoking weed.
last time i smoked,
i was higher than jupiter.
i was legit professor x out here,
putting together pieces of puzzles and the meaning of space and time.
i realized weed and i don’t mix well together.
i don’t think it ever has tbh.
i just did it because everyone else was doing it,
but it never had a real good high except maybe the first one after i lost Mum.
today,
they passed a law that had all my weed friend’s celebrating…

New York officially legalized weed Wednesday as Gov. Cuomo signed legislation that will regulate the sale of recreational marijuana for adults and expunge the records of people previously convicted of possession.

Legislators approved the long-stalled measure late Tuesday, sending the bill allowing adults over 21 to use weed legally to the governor’s desk.

This is a historic day in New York — one that rights the wrongs of the past by putting an end to harsh prison sentences, embraces an industry that will grow the Empire State’s economy, and prioritizes marginalized communities so those that have suffered the most will be the first to reap the benefits,” Cuomo said in a statement. “I’m proud these comprehensive reforms address and balance the social equity, safety and economic impacts of legal adult-use cannabis.”

Officials say the marijuana market will eventually lead to as many as 60,000 new jobs and generate $350 million in revenue annually.

Adults over 21 will also be allowed to grow marijuana at home. It will be a while before legal sales begin or plants are allowed to grow as the newly-created Office of Cannabis Management is formed and finalizes rules and regulations. Most experts predict sales will start in late 2022 or early 2023.

Some parts of the law take effect immediately as anyone previously convicted of possessing an amount of marijuana now under the legal limit will automatically be subject to expungement and resentencing.

As of Wednesday, New Yorkers can legally possess less than 3 ounces of marijuana and consuming cannabis is permitted in public wherever smoking tobacco is allowed.

420 is about to be some shit out here.

although,
tbh,
many new yawkers were still doing whatever tf they wanted before this was passed.
the fun of doing something without getting caught might be gone tho.
i’m glad those with records for weed will get wiped because that shit was bs to begin with.

from everyone trying to be outside cause they got vaccinated and weed becoming legal,
all of this is setting up to be a really interesting summer in new yawk this year.

lowkey: i want to get wild this year tbh.
i feel like a feral fox.
