Instead both sides peacefully made their arguments, according to a report from the Daily Bulletin. Anti-legalization supporters made theirs in the comforts of an air-conditioned cultural center holding the National Marijuana Policy & Strategy Conference, while decriminalization advocates made their message outside to the public, with voices such as Lanny Swerdlow and StT guest contributor Diane Goldstein on hand. “This is no different than the alcohol…

New York Medical Marijuana Would Aid 100,000, Says Comptroller Liu

New York City comptroller John C. Liu said Aug. 29 that legalized medical marijuana in Gotham would help about 100,000 patients and recommends $100 million public-owned research fund to establish City-owned and operated cannabis growing sites, and requiring insurance providers to cover prescriptions for the medicinal botanical. “We estimate that more than 100,000 New Yorkers with serious medical conditions would benefit if medical marijuana were legalized — and that gives us 100,000 good reasons to do it,” said Comptroller Liu. “Marijuana’s medical value is well-established, but it is still routinely denied to patients and researchers.
