The New York State Bar Association on Friday recommended the full legalization of marijuana, following a recommendation by the bar association’s Committee on Cannabis Law.

The committee analyzed the issue in a 23-page report, concluding that no city or state that has previously legalized marijuana provides a perfect model for New York to follow, while recommending how the state could best make legal weed a reality.
