Democrats seek to make New York among the most-lenient when it comes to marijuana possession

A bill proposed in Albany could make New York one of the most-lenient when it comes to marijuana possession.

The bill is sponsored by two Democrats: state Sen. Liz Krueger and Assemblymember Crystal Peoples-Stokes.

It would allow anyone over 21 to have three ounces of marijuana on their person.

A competing proposal from Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo would only allow dispensaries to sell one ounce of marijuana per person on a daily basis.
