The New York Times today said that Governor Cuomo’s proposal to distribute cannabis through hospitals may be too restrictive and called on him to support the Gottfried/Savino bill.
In other words, you have your pick of reasons why this proposal is a non-starter.
Cuomo has now stated that there should be a functional medical cannabis distribution system in New York. The only question is what type.
It is incumbent upon him and anyone else who opposes the Gottfried/Savino bill to explain with particularity what is the basis for their opposition.
