Earlier this month a cannabis social-use legalization proposal was certified by the New York Board of Elections.

On November 7, 2017, New York State voters will either approve or reject a state constitutional convention, which is a gathering of elected delegates who propose revisions and amendments to a state constitution. The convention is one of the few government mechanisms available to pass legalization outside of the state legislature

According to the New York Constitution, the question to hold a constitutional convention is automatically placed on the statewide general election ballot every 20 years.

If the convention is approved by voters, it will be held in April, 2019 before voting on the revised amendment later in the year.
