Do You Want NY to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

25 Sep 2018 2:31 PM | Babette Grey (Administrator)

Governor Cuomo has called for a series of “listening sessions” across New York State to receive public comment regarding a proposal to legalize and regulate the recreational use of marijuana in New York State. 

There are public health concerns with this proposal including but not limited to the following.  

  • Intoxication 
  • Carcinogenic effects 
  • Respiratory illnesses 
  • Altered mental status 
  • Depression 
  • Anxiety 
  • Addiction 

In the era of narcotic dependence and associated catastrophic outcome, the State of New York is seeking to legalize this substance. It is important to have a consistent and scientifically sound public health policy concerning this issue. 

We encourage all physicians to participate in these listening sessions and provide your expertise and feedback.
