New York could become the 16th state to legalize recreational marijuana.

Governor Andrew Cuomo is pushing forward legislation to legalize the drug. 

He says it could give the state an economic boost.

Cuomo also said it would bring an end to the disproportionate impact drug charges have on Black and Latino communities.
