New York Assembly Approves Medical Marijuana Bill

The Assembly approved medical marijuana legislation in a 92-52 vote on Wednesday.

By Karen O'Keefe

New York has a real shot of joining the 12 other states that allow seriously ill patients to use medical marijuana with their doctors’ approval.

For the first time ever, the New York Assembly voted on Wednesday on Assemblyman Richard Gottfried's legislation to protect seriously ill patients from arrest for the medical use of marijuana. The Assembly approved the bill in a 92-52 vote. And newspapers are reporting that the Republican-controlled Senate may take up the issue before the legislature adjourns on Thursday.

Let's hope we get this legislation passed.
