New York: Medical Marijuana Measure Passes Assembly Committee
Legislation that would allow for the medical use of cannabis by qualifed patients, Assembly Bill 6357, has been approved by the Assembly Committee on Health in a 21-4 vote. It now awaits action from the full General Assembly. It's companion legislation, Senate Bill 4406, still has yet to be scheduled for a hearing by the Senate Health Committee.
These measures would allow for the medical use of cannabis by qualified patients and are being supported by a bi-partisan coalition of more than 50 lawmakers. Under this act, physician-authorized patients would be allowed to possess up to 2 and one-half ounces of cannabis. The measure also allows for the establishment of licensed not-for-profit and for-profit facilities to produce and distribute cannabis to qualified patients. You can read the full text of these measures here and here.
A statewide poll by Siena College, conducted in June 2012, reported that 61 percent of respondents approve of allowing for the medicinal use of marijuana.
Since 1996, eighteen states and the District of Columbia have approved legislation allowing for the use of cannabis therapy by qualified patients

Good pun. Try your choice of many strains that will mitigate or even eliminate that nausea you are experiencing. Nausea is one of many afflictions that can be addressed through the natural and organic means of cannabis rather than fall prey to big pharma and the poisons they inflict us with that come out of a lab.
If you have glaucoma, arthritis, anxiety or other afflictions that our population experiences, then you can quite possible kill two birds with the same stone by taking a natural route rather than feed the big pharma monster.
And a side benefit is that you won't have to experience the short or long-term side effects of the vast majority of concoctions that have been coming out of laboratories for the last fifty years.
