NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Opposition to Medical Marijuana Might Not Matter
    #18120860 - 04/16/13 11:20 PM (7 years, 9 months ago)

Syracuse, N.Y. -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo said again today he does not support legalizing medical marijuana in New York state. "I understand the argument," he said on a day when medical marijuana advocates went to Albany to lobby lawmakers and the governor to sanction a drug they say would relieve their suffering.

"We are looking at it," he added, then said. "I do not support it at this time."

Cuomo, a Democrat in his third year, said the risks of legalizing a marijuana industry and keeping the drug separate from illegal users are too great.

Lawmakers supporting the issue said today they have enough votes in both houses to put the law on Cuomo's desk. The New York State Assembly has passed similar legislation in past years; the New York State Senate, typically much more conservative, has never voted on the issue.

“We’re picking up support member by member,” Sen. Diane Savino, D-Staten Island, said today, according to the Albany Times Union. “My count now is we have 38 yes votes, solid yes votes, (and) six leaning yes. We only need 32 in the Senate: We’re going to get this bill done this year.”

The correct statement of individual rights is that everyone has the right to an opinion, but crucially, that opinion can be roundly ignored and even made fun of, particularly if it is demonstrably nonsense."
