New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) reiterated his newfound support for legalizing marijuana in his inaugural speech on Tuesday, just after he was sworn into a third term in office.

Democrats on the congressional Joint Economic Committee published a report on Tuesday highlighting the “economic benefits of legalized cannabis at the state and national levels.”

Following a year of huge advancements in marijuana policy reform, experts predict that 2019 would be a “real game-changer” in terms of the conversation surrounding cannabis legalization at both the state and federal level.

Amendment mirrors STATES Act introduced in June.

With the results of last month's midterm elections—which marijuana basically won—ten states have now legalized cannabis for adults, while 33 allow medical use.

New York will become the next state to legalize marijuana if Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has his way.
