Good episode? Give it some love!
As we continue to work our way through one of the most challenging health and economic crises in our nation’s history, New York State is facing a multibillion-dollar budget deficit at a time when more and more New Yorkers are relying on vital public services.

The need for adequate state funding could not be more glaring.

One way to address the budget deficit is by legalizing adult-use cannabis. It will not only generate much needed revenue, but it will also create good jobs and address social, racial, and economic equity.

On this podcast our guests are Nikki Kateman, the Political and Communications Director at Local 338 of the RWDSU/UFCW and Tim McNutt, a former prosecutor who is now the Director of Criminal Justice and Employment Initiative at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations.
