Elmira, N.Y. – New York could be the next state to legalize marijuana use. Tuesday State Senator Diane Savino introduced a bill in the senate that would legalize medical marijuana for patients with serious medical conditions like cancer or aids.
It’s called the Compassionate Care Act. Doctors will be authorized to prescribe marijuana to certified patients or designated caregivers to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana.
