New York Governor Candidate Andrew Cuomo Against Medical Marijuana

Democrat Andrew Cuomo has recently showed us in the medical marijuana community just how uneducated he is when it comes to medical marijuana.

Heading into the final week of his campaign for governor, Cuomo told reporters on Sunday that he does not want to see New York follow California’s example and legalize marijuana for medical purposes.

“The dangers of medical marijuana outweigh the benefits,” said Cuomo, who has admitted using marijuana in his youth. “I don’t think the bill passes.”

When told that medical marijuana’s legalization could generate revenues for the state, he said, “A lot of things could raise revenues. Legalizing prostitution could raise revenues. I’m against that, too.”

Medical marijuana’s benefits include giving the sick a means to feel better, creating jobs, and increasing state revenue, so I am interested to hear about all the negatives that “outweigh” all of those things. Though, I’m sure if I heard them I would just have even more bad things to say about Cuomo.

Cuomo’s opponent, Republican Carl Paladino, recently said he wanted the issue put to a referendum.
