Medical Marijuana Legalization Bill For New York Uses Colorado’s ‘seed To Sale’ Model: Lawmakers – Ny Daily News

Theyve been pretty good because you need somebody to educate you because we dont have any frame of reference in New York how do you run a medical marijuana program, what would one look like. That is the role of a lobbyist. Critics of Colorados law point out that the state is already seeing public safety and health problems more teens are being admitted to hospitals after being sickened by edible forms of marijuana. Kids cant tell the difference between a chocolate chip cookie thats going to put you in the emergency room and a chocolate chip cookie thats going to give you a sugar high, said Kevin Sabet, executive director of anti-legalization group Smart Approaches to Marijuana. He said New Yorks ban on puffing does not eliminate the risk that pot cooked into a cookie can still get into the wrong hands. john raffaghello II/Getty Images/iStockphoto Critics of Colorados law point out that the state is already seeing public safety and health problems more teens are being admitted to hospitals after being sickened by edible forms of marijuana. Drug policy analysts applauded parts of the bill, like the fact that Gov. Cuomo can pull the plug on the program if the Department of Health or Public Safety recommends doing so. Sabet said time would tell if New Yorks program remains in the mold of states like New Mexico and New Jersey, which have limited access to marijuana, or Washington state, where weed is advertised with gaudy neon signs. If youre going to have a program, it needs to be very limited without advertising or any kind of commercialization attached to it, he said. Questions also remain about staffing and oversight to implement the terms of the new bill.
