While I commend Gov. Cuomo for his efforts to legalize medical
marijuana in New York, I don't think he goes far enough. Everyone who
needs it should have access to pot, not just those who can get past
the hurdle of a committee to decide who gets it or not. We could be
raising millions in revenue by taxing it like cigarettes and alcohol,
both of which it's no worse than! Since our Legislature has proven
itself incapable of making a decision, why not put it on the ballot
and let the people decide? Isn't that what democracy is all about?
