New York Becomes Twenty-Third State to Legalize Medical Marijuana

Jul 08, 2014

New York became the twenty-third state to legalize medical marijuana this week, but its law is one of the most restrictive in the country.

Under the new legislation, doctors can prescribe marijuana in non-smokable forms – including pills, oils and vapors – for seriously ill or injured patients.

Among the other states that allow medical marijuana are Connecticut, Vermont and New Jersey.
