For today's weed news we go to the great state of New York.
New York Governor Cuomo has his mind made up about legalizing recreational marijuana to New York. Unless something drastic gets in the way, pretty much everybody expects recreational weed to become a thing in New York in early 2019.
And now, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union has announced that are already planning to help cannabis workers organize and possibly have them become part of the Union the minute that weed becomes legal in New York.
"When people buy marijuana, I hope they look for the union label... It's going to be big. We're talking many thousands of jobs from seed to sale," said Stuart Appelbaum, the president of the Retail, Warehouse and Department Store Union in an interview with The Post last weekend.
"We think the best way to create decent jobs is through unionization," Applebaum continued.
As it stands right now the RWDSWU represents less than a thousand workers involved in the state's rather small MMJ program. They are however affiliated with the United Food and Commercial International Union who already represent "tens of thousands of workers in other states".
Applebaum said that he hopes to see people working in the marijuana industry in New York making around $27 an hour plus benefits. I feel like a lot of people are gonna be on board with that.
For me personally, it's kind of crazy to think about how quickly cannabis went from fully illegal, dangerous and evil to out in the open with Worker's Unions interested in recruiting people involved in the business. And let's not forget, weed isn't even legal in New York yet!
Props to Governor Cuomo for pushing to update New York's weed situation.
I really feel like 2019 is going to be amazing for cannabis y'all and New York is going to be one of the first ones to get it poppin.
And that's what's up!
Happy new year y'all!!
