If you were looking for a way to boost your state’s post-pandemic prosperity, there are plenty of options out there for you, as Americans, by and large, have been waiting patiently at home for a reason to get back to the world at large.

This isolation period also brought with it a windfall of savings, as we and our fellow countrymen cut back on some of our spending habits out of necessity. We’ve been eating out less, drinking less at the bar and more at home, and using less gasoline.

In other words: We’re sitting on some cash, for the most part, and when it comes time to spend it, the economy will likely begin to roar.

In New York State, they’re preparing to supercharge their pandemic recovery with one of the world’s most profitable cash crops as well.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has previously said he will sign the bill into law once it reaches his desk, and on Tuesday night, he reiterated that plan.

“Tonight, the New York State Legislature took the first step in a major leap forward for the Empire State by passing legislation to legalize adult-use cannabis,” he said in a statement. “For too long the prohibition of cannabis disproportionately targeted communities of color with harsh prison sentences and after years of hard work, this landmark legislation provides justice for long-marginalized communities, embraces a new industry that will grow the economy, and establishes substantial safety guards for the public.”

“New York has a storied history of being the progressive capital of the nation, and this important legislation will once again carry on that legacy,” he added. “I look forward to signing this legislation into law.”

Of course, Cuomo’s willingness to sign such a popular piece of legislation is a great way for the embattled Governor to take attention off of the demise of his political ambitions, caused by the nine women who’ve come forward to accuse him of sexual harassment and assault.
