Yesterday the Governor had another tune as called Monday for the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in New York, saying it was beyond time for the state to deal with the "debilitating criminal stigma" of prior convictions related to the drug, according to spectrum news.Marijuana legalization is expected to become a huge topic at the Capitol come January, when everyone is ready to kick off the new year.
