Now that his state has passed a same-sex marriage law, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who said just before his election last November that he thinks the dangers of legalizing marijuana – even for medical use – outweigh its benefits, has now said he’s reconsidering that stance.

Specifically, the governor, who has also admitted to smoking marijuana during his youth, said he’s talking to people on both sides of the MMJ issue, though so far he still opposes its prescription use.

New York State Senator Diane Savino (D-Staten Island) believes her state has to follow the lead of neighboring New Jersey in order to help patients with cancer, multiple sclerosis, and other chronic diseases.

Here’s hoping that if New York does move forward with MMJ legalizaton, it doesn’t follow New Jersey’s lead with regard to spending over a year haggling over rules and regulations.
