Cropped Paxson Woelber / The Alaska Landmine / CC BY 2.0 ALBANY – New York’s Governor this week discussed what the future of legalizing recreational marijuana, this after neighboring New Jersey approved a similar measure.“New Jersey did it on the ballot, which, in retrospect, I think was probably, turned out to be the faster way to do it,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said during an interview on WAMC Radio’s The Roundtable with Alan Chartock.Medical use of marijuana was already legal in the Garden State, but the legislature was unable to pass a bill to fully legalize cannabis.Instead, state lawmakers decided to put the question directly to voters in the form of a referendum. Under the ballot measure approved by voters, marijuana would be legal for personal use by adults 21 and older.The commission that currently regulates the medical marijuana market in the state would also manage the recreational use market.The Governor, who supports legalizing marijuana for recreational use, said he thinks the state will “get there” in 2021, called it the “right policy,” and said “the state is going to be desperate for funding.”“The question becomes about the money, about the distribution, and the power… who gets the licenses and who gets the money,” he said.Last year, New York decriminalized recreational marijuana but stopped short of legalizing, regulating and taxing it.New York State enacted its medical marijuana program in 2014.Arizona and South Dakota also voted to legalize recreational marijuana.

“You have the guarantee that after the match, independent of the result, we are together again, enjoying our time and having a laugh. “With David we don’t have this kind of relationship, but we have a good relationship. “I think we can start this kind of very nice relationship I had always with Sir Alex, no problem. “During the game, it’s a game. It’s not manager against manager. It’s club against club, it’s 11 against 11, it’s big players against big players. We just do our job normally.” A potential break in the relationship could be caused by Mourinho’s pursuit of Wayne Rooney. Twice Chelsea have had bids rejected for the Manchester United striker and Mourinho has said a third bid will be made after Monday’s match. Asked how Mourinho will feel if Rooney plays against his side, the self-styled Special One said: “The same emotions I always feel when I play against him. “I played against him with Real Madrid and with Chelsea and with Inter. The emotions is you have to be worried with a good player. No more than that.” Mourinho takes his Chelsea side to Old Trafford on Monday for an opportunity to strike an early blow in the Barclays Premier League title race. The defending champions and the Blues are under new leadership this term, but Mourinho expects the same challenge he faced against Ferguson’s United. Press Association “There are things that we cannot change,” Mourinho said. “David has experience and he knows that he cannot change history. The history that Sir Alex did is there and it is there forever. “Is that a problem for David? I don’t think so. I think David doesn’t want to be compared with Sir Alex. “I think he’s in the best moment of his career – maturity, experience, a big, big, big club, very good players. I think he’s in a fantastic position and I think he’s going to do very well. “I hope he doesn’t win everything and he will leave something for the others, but he’s in fantastic condition.” Mourinho enjoyed a close relationship with Ferguson, who informed the Portuguese of his intention to retire before making the announcement public. After being omnipresent at Old Trafford during Mourinho’s time in management, now there will be a different face in the Old Trafford dugout. “For me the difference is the routine of meeting a friend, of being together and relaxed before the match,” added Mourinho, reflecting on his time in opposition to Ferguson. Jose Mourinho expects David Moyes to thrive as Manchester United manager and does not expect the challenge of succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson to phase the former Everton boss.
