Cuomo Set to Loosen Marijuana Laws

"Joining a growing group of states that have loosened restrictions on marijuana, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York plans this week to announce an executive action that would allow limited use of the drug by those with serious illnesses," the New York Times reports.

"The shift by Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat who had long resisted legalizing medical marijuana, comes as other states are taking increasingly liberal positions on it -- most notably Colorado, where thousands have flocked to buy the drug for recreational use since it became legal on Jan. 1."
