ITHACA, N.Y. (WHCU) – A democratic candidate in the race for New York’s 125th Assembly Race says legalizing adult use cannabis is a social justice issue.
Cortland County Legislator Beau Harbin believes allowing cannabis use could benefit both New York farmers and minority communities.
“Especially if we made sure licensing was for our small farmers and not international ag. Business. Along with that it’s a racial justice issue. By legalizing adult use cannabis we’re making sure funds are set aside for impacted minority communities,” said Beau Harbin, Democratic Candidate, NYS 125th Assembly.
Harbin’s also campaigning on a plan for healthcare for all New Yorkers.
