Marijuana arrests have a devastating and disproportionate impact on communities of color in New York state. Hundreds of thousands of people across the state have been funneled into the criminal justice system – for behavior that most New Yorkers don’t even believe should be a crime.
TAKE ACTION: Tell state leaders it’s time to end the criminalization of marijuana for good by passing the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA).
