Fully legal cannabis is on the horizon for two East Coast states. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to legalize adult-use marijuana statewide.

Governor Tony Evers of Wisconsin is working on his state budget, and he plans to include a pathway for the legalization of medical cannabis. Additionally, he expressed support for legalizing recreational marijuana. Good stuff, Evers.
