ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to add New York to the 20 states allowing medical marijuana use.
Marijuana remains illegal in New York, though possession of small amounts has been reduced to a low-level violation subject to a fine.

I have NEVER been a fan of Cuomo OR his stupid father. While at HUD, Andrew Cuomo was firmly in the "Let's Give Away the Store" mode, giving unbelievable amounts away to wastrels. He was directly involved in the subprime mortgage crisis, lobbied for and signed New York up as a haven for gay "marriages", made a fool of himself by limiting firearms and bullet cartridges to 7 bullets, and is a total libtard. Who knows who will run against him in the fall?
Great - you can smoke it at Cuomo’s planned NY State casinos.
Not a shock. They are desperate for tax dollars and will go the Colorado route. Will be interesting to watch the Lawsuit Capital of the Planet handle the deaths on the highway. They’ll find a way to quantify a DUI limit.
Not me, pal! I wouldn’t smoke anything-—cigarettes or dope.
The irony- NY state govt just banned e-cigs on state property.
I’m sure after NY state legalizes pot the pot dealers will suddenly discover they’ll be taxed to death and will then regret it being legalized.
Colorados Pot Shops Say Theyll Be Sold Out Any Day Now
Jan. 04, 2014
Prices have been steepin some cases, stores were charging $50 or even $70 for one-eighth of an ounce of pot that cost medical marijuana users just $25 the day beforeand taxes add on an extra 20% or so. Even so, sales have been brisk.
The two operational pot shops in Pueblo collectively sold $87,000 of marijuana on January 1, per the Pueblo Chieftain, and store owners say that if demand persists anywhere near the current high, theyll be sold out in the very near future.
Interesting choice of words. :-)
I remember 35-40 years ago some doctors were dispensing prescriptions for pills for any reason. You could tell the ones who did by the long line outside the door.
