NYS Marijuana Agreement Reached

The New York State legislature and Governor Cuomo making a tentative agreement on legalizing medical marijuana on Thursday.

The New York State legislature and Governor Cuomo making a tentative agreement on legalizing medical marijuana on Thursday.

The agreement includes a major demand of the Cuomo administration:  That no smoking of the drug will be permitted.  Patients would use the drug through a variety of other ways - including edibles and vaporization. The program would last for seven years, though legislators could re-authorize it after that period.

“We also have a failsafe. The governor can suspend the program at any time. If there is a risk, if we find that there are unintended consequences, and they are negative, we can suspend the program,” says Gov. Cuomo.

The drug will only be prescribed by doctors, and not physicians assistants.
