New York Expands Medical Marijuana Program

In a vote of 101 to 6, the New York Assembly approved a new measure that adds Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to the list of state-approved conditions that medical marijuana can treat. Currently, medical marijuana is only approved to treat a handful of serious conditions including cancer, HIV and AIDS, Lou Gehrig's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, epilepsy, some spinal cord injuries, and multiple sclerosis. The bill is sponsored by Assemblyman Richard Gottfried who says, “There is a lot of evidence that medical marijuana is very effective in treating PTSD.” Now, the legislation is moving to the GOP-controlled state Senate, where it is sponsored by Senator Diane Savino.
