We endorse Cannabis4NY's efforts to spearhead changes in NY State's marijuana industry. The state's current laws and industry is dysfunctional, and fails to address a simple fact: there are billions in annual sales of marijuana in NYC alone, with suppliers selling untested and unsafe products. The state, its patients, and all its citizens, will benefit from a legal and properly-regulated industry. The time to create meaningful change is NOW.
New York must legalize, regulate and restrict access to adult-use cannabis. A disproportionate number of young black and brown men get trapped in the legal system for possessing small amounts of marijuana. CannaInvestor Magazine supports RRNY's effort to reform New York State marijuana laws and eliminate these vestiges of racism and let our men of color become productive, tax-paying citizens and fathers.
The Marijuana Agenda is all about treating the consumers of cannabis with the same rights, respect, and responsibilities as the consumers ofalcohol. Marijuana legalization has been a success in every state where the people have approved it. New Yorkers deserve the same right to reform their outdated marijuana prohibition and should back the Cannabis4NY campaign to make legalization happen.

Kush Bottles fully supports Restrict and Regulate in NY State 2019 and the efforts to legalize cannabis in the great state of New York. We believe that sensible regulation is the only way to reduce criminal activity and to keep cannabis away from children. Studies are showing that people want the freedom to use cannabis, and now New York has a clear path to making that a reality.
We support Cannabis4NY's efforts to move the needle on legal cannabis access to the 'Yes' column in a fair and equitable manner. Many are suffering needlessly because they choose to grow, process, or consume a plant known to have medicinal benefits - without harm. It's time to remove legal barriers to access!
Canna Ventures supports Restrict and Regulate in New York State efforts to end prohibition of cannabis in New York. As we have successfully witnessed in our home state of Washington, sensible regulation reduces criminal activity, extends access to patients, creates jobs and revenue for local and state agencies. The goals of RRNY just make sense.
Mentor Capital, Inc. (MNTR) endorses the consideration of the legalization of cannabis in New York as part of an upcoming NY state convention. MNTR is a cannabis-focused public M&A company with a medical bias. In our independent analysis, we find that 1,000 opioid overdose deaths could be avoided in NY each year by full legalization of cannabis because, if cannabis was completely legal in NY, there is a 20% substitution from opioids to cannabis and no one dies from cannabis. 1,000 NY lives are worth saving each year.
