In a state famous for it’s Draconian Rockefeller Drug Laws, it’s amazing that this “medical marijuana” initiative has even made it this far. NYS lawmakers are hoping to approve cannabis for medical purposes by as early as this week. The Democrat-led Assembly is on board as is the Republican-led Senate. Even though Governor Spitzer has mentioned he’s not in favor of medical marijuana last year, a spokesman for him announced he’s more open minded now. If New York signs on, it would be the (lucky?) 13th state to approve a “medical marijuana program.” This might be the time for collective meditation.
