New York May Be Next To Legalize Medical Marijuana

Advocates are hoping New York follows New Jersey’s example of legalizing medical marijauna

After a legislative session with no progress on legalizing medical marijuana, advocates are hoping that the New Jersey governor’s actions this week and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s statement that he is studying the issue will lead to success. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican, said his state would move forward with its medical-marijuana act, a reversal from his position last month. He said at the time he was concerned that the state legislation conflicts with federal law and practice. The U.S. Justice Department said earlier this month that it is focused on large-scale commercial providers.
