Ny’s Top Health Official Wants to Legalize Marijuana

Another barrier to legal pot just went up in smoke.

The state’s top health official said Monday that he’s going to recommend the legalization of marijuana in a report to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

“We looked at the pros. We looked at the cons and when we were done, we realized that the pros outweighed the cons and the report recommends that a regulated, legal marijuana program be available to adults in the state of New York,” Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said at an event in Brooklyn.

“I will finalize that report soon and bring it to the governor.”
