new york to allow medical marijuana?

Es­ti­mated reading time is 1 minute.

ACCORDING TO THE FOLKS over there at CB­SNews, “New York would be­come the 21st state to allow med­ical use of mar­i­juana under an ini­tia­tive Gov. An­drew Cuomo will un­veil this week. Cuomo plans to use ad­min­is­tra­tive powers rather than leg­isla­tive ac­tion to allow a lim­ited number of hos­pi­tals to dis­pense mar­i­juana for cer­tain ail­ments. He will for­mally an­nounce his plans in his state of the state speech Wednesday.”

Oh goody, I can’t wait to read David Brooks’ opinion-piece on this de­vel­op­ment. (Refer to my pre­vious post, “david brooks con­ser­v­a­tives mar­i­juana.”) For the sake of con­sis­tency, he will have to take the government—and its De­mo­c­ratic gov­ernor, naturlich—to task for en­cour­aging the “lesser pleasures.”

And, since we all know that New Yorkers are so much more sus­cep­tible to taking a walk on the wild side, per­haps he will pre­dict that one in four res­i­dents of the Big Apple will be­come ad­dicted to mar­i­juana in the next few years.

Uh oh! Am I re­sorting to sar­casm here?

FEATURED IMAGE: Y’all know what this is a photo of. I swore off the stuff, but it does have a ten­dency to come out at the oddest of times. (Refer to my piece “the trans­mo­gri­fi­ca­tion of free will into jukin’ bone“on my other site,, for a bit of self-deprecation of my former con­de­scending self.)
