Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes isn’t giving up on the push for the legalization of marijuana in New York.,

The Buffalo Democrat in an interview on Tuesday said she will be meeting with advocates to discuss the issue and “strategically plan on how we’re going to make that happen.”

The legalization of marijuana fell out of the budget talks amid concerns from lawmakers over traffic safety and how to direct revenue to communities affected by stiff drug laws.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo at a press conference on Sunday indicated he wanted to keep the issue alive in the post-budget session, a process in which the governor typically has less leverage with lawmakers over how legislation is ultimately shaped.

“It’s encouraging to know the governor still is interested on working on the topic,” Peoples-Stokes said. “I’m not sure it was a holdup. There was an agreement on things conceptually, but there was not an agreement on how to articulate that language in legislation.”

Cuomo had sought to use some of the revenue from sales tax on marijuana to offset costs for upgrading New York City’s mass transit systems.

Marijuana legalization supporters had also sought aid for communities of color with the revenue. Peoples-Stokes said she wanted that revenue to be recurring beyond the time she eventually leaves office.

“We’re talking about two generations of negative hits on communities,” she said.
