Mayor Como has it right, medical marijuana should be only for patients suffering from cancer, glaucoma and other serious diseases, not just because they have a backache, every one has a backache of some kind, but medical marijuana was supposed to be for terminally ill people (not recreational use) where drugs did not help, or it took to many to relieve the pain which could be worse than death, they just want to relieve the pain while they are still alive, not so stoned on pain killers that they don’t know if they are dead or alive.
Major Hospitals should be the only ones to prescribe marijuana and prove that person is terminally ill and need it, and put the hospital on the hot seat for giving it to any one who is not terminally ill, and could lose their license, and if that person gives it to some one else, then they lose that right to get medical marijuana, and then they are banned from having any marijuana in their possession.
But today the law got a bunch of druggies, and Yuppies in Government, so any sensible program will be ignored for more costly programs to be passed without looking at the out come before any mistakes are made, once made then try to reverse them, but they all went to college which shows how much they learned other than dumb and dumber, they sure did not learn any thing else. And to make it worse, they want to lace food you eat with it, now this is where food labeling should be mandatory, and a ban to stop spiking food with drugs of any kind.
Now that Government has opened the door to marijuana, what is the next drug they are going to try to get legalized, give them an inch and they will want a mile, and there will be no end to it, it has already started with the Environment to where jobs have been lost, you can not solve any problem with people out of work to solve and work on the problem, but a hand full Environmental Terrorist think that they are the solution and not the problem, how many farms have been closed whether it be cattle or produce, Environmentalist and EPA, they are the biggest problem in this Country for that and jobs.
New York Gov. Cuomo to allow limited use of medical marijuana

NEW YORK (Reuters) – New York will soon allow the limited use of medical marijuana for seriously ill patients under a plan the state’s governor will announce in the next few days, the New York Times reported on Saturday.
Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has steadily resisted pressure to legalize marijuana, was expected to announce the plan at Wednesday’s State of the State address, according to the newspaper’s website.
A spokesman for Cuomo’s office declined to comment on the report.
The newspaper said the policy will be far more restrictive than the laws in Colorado or California, where medical marijuana is available to people with conditions such as backaches.
The move comes amid sharply shifting attitudes in the United States toward marijuana use.
Earlier this week, Colorado became the first state to regulate and sell marijuana for recreational use.
Twenty states and the District of Columbia have passed laws in recent years allowing for various uses of medical marijuana – but only Colorado and Washington have decriminalized its recreational use.
Washington is not slated to open its first retail establishments until later in 2014.
Under Cuomo’s plan, 20 hospitals across New York will be allowed to prescribe marijuana to patients suffering from cancer, glaucoma and other serious diseases that meet standards to be set by the state Department of Health, the newspaper said.
Cuomo’s executive action does not require legislative approval, but instead relies on a provision in a state public health law that allows for the use of controlled substances for patients with cancer and other serious illnesses, it said.
