Wednesday, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted:
#BREAKING: I just signed legislation legalizing adult-use cannabis.
The bill creates automatic expungement of previous marijuana convictions that would now be legal.
This is a historic day.
I thank the Leader and Speaker and the tireless advocacy of so many.
Actress Patricia Arquette replied “So many peoples lives were derailed or ruined. Glad to see this finally happening.”
One Twitter user blasted Patricia Arquette, tweeting “Yeah just like all the people who died in the nursing homes and the women he harassed and assaulted but yay weed.”
