The New York State Assembly is lining up dates in the future for four public hearings on the authorization of marijuana.

The hearings, announced Tuesday, will seek input on proposals to regulate and tax adult use of marijuana in New York State.

Many states in northeast, as well as Canada, have or are in the process of regulating an adult marijuana use program.

A formal public hearing notice, with locations, dates and additional information will be issued at a later date.
