New York Senate is hashing out bill to legalize weed

New York lawmakers on Sunday appeared to be fired up for a pot party — with a new bill to legalize marijuana set to be introduced in the state Senate.

The legislation will be similar to a proposal floated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, sources said.

Details weren’t available, but the timing of the move — three days before Wednesday’s scheduled end of the legislative session — suggested that the Senate’s leadership believed a deal was likely.

One well-connected pot proponent put the odds of passage at 60-40. “It’s more likely it gets done than not, but there’s no guarantee,” the source said.
