To the Governor and State Senators,
Regarding the legalization of marijuana, while there are practicalities and social justice reasons for moving forward, please recognize the devastating disruption the already easier access with vaping marijuana is creating for New York high schools. Instead of schools finally addressing equity in school suspension and focused on improving instruction, administrators are and will have to spend increasingly significant time investigating and dealing out consequences for widespread use by students. In turn this impacts the learning experiences and outcomes for all students. How will you protect schools and students from the severe negative impact of marijuana legalization?

I would love to see the implementation of hybrid diesel electric trolly buses, as used on the silver line in Boston. They use mains electric via overhead cables where available, but have the flexibility of diesel to go off-grid. Perhaps the diesel could be done away with all together and use batteries in place of.
