Set New York Free! Legalize Pot!

The announcement by New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo to allow 20 hospitals in the state to dispense medical marijuana is a sea-change shift in policy. The Democrat is up for re-election this year and is going against the grain in the state known for the strict Rockefeller drug laws. Possibly this change is intended to offset potential challengers, such as rebel writer and television producer Richard Stratton, from gaining political traction with liberal voters. For whatever the reason behind this liberal initiative, Cuomo’s executive action has widespread repercussions for tribal neighbors.
