MPP (Marijuana Policy Project) says: "Until this January, Gov. Andrew Cuomo opposed medical marijuana. While he’s finally joined the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers who believe marijuana should be available to the seriously ill, his plan is unworkable. The governor’s proposal would reportedly revive a restrictive 1980 medical marijuana law that would allow some hospitals in New York to implement the limited use of marijuana for patients in sense- or life-threatening situations.
Unlike the medical marijuana bill sponsored by Assemblyman Richard Gottfried and Senator Diane Savino, Gov. Cuomo’s proposal would not create an effective program.
The 1980 law only allows patients to access marijuana from a limited number of hospitals, which would dispense marijuana that was either obtained from a federally approved source or that is illegal to dispense under federal law. But the federal government has refused to provide marijuana even to some short-term FDA-approved studies, and there is no reason to think it will approve marijuana for longer-term patient access. Meanwhile, hospitals will not break federal law by distributing unapproved marijuana.Fortunately, a growing number of Senators are supportive of an effective medical marijuana program, including Republican Sens. Mark Grisanti (R, IP - Buffalo), George Maziarz (R - Newfane), Joe Robach (R, C, IP – Rochester), and Tom O’Mara (R, C – Big Flats, Elmira). "
