    New York Governor Wants State to Legalize Weed in 2013

    [​IMG]

    In 2012 Medical marijuana dispensaries became more and more ubiquitous—20 states and the District of Columbia now have decriminalized or legalized medical cannabis, and in many of them, getting a card is about as difficult as finding a doctor and opening your mouth to make words to him. In his state of the union address on Wednesday, New York governor Andrew Cuomo not only vowed this year to decriminalize marijuana in the state, he said that it is one of his top priorities this year.

    Also decriminalization is not the same thing as legalization....

    Decriminalization just eliminates and or reduces fines, penalties on mostly possession. it may remove jail/prison time for violations. All based on whatever amounts the deem fit to set the bar at.
