New Bill Proposed For Medical Marijuana

New Bill Proposed For Medical Marijuana

     Legislation to legalize marijuana for medical purposes is blooming once again at the State Capital. Senator Diane Savino and Assemblyman Richard Gottfried introduced a bill Tuesday that would allow pot to be used as medicine. It's called the Compassionate Care Act and it would allow doctors to carry up to two-and-a-half ounces of marijuana for those with serious medical conditions. Earlier attempts to pass the same legislation fizzled in the Senate and Governor Cuomo is also against the measure.
