Democrats and Non-Liberals to Announce Medical Marijuana Bill

ALBANY—Assemblyman Dick Gottfried and State Senator Tom Duane will each introduce a medical marijuana bill tomorrow at a press conference, and with their Democratic Party in control of both houses of the legislature, Gottfried told me the chance of passage is better than ever this year.
“I think we have much better prospects this year, because there are identical bills in the Senate and Assembly,” he said on the Assembly floor just now. The bill has been introduced in the Assembly for the last 13 years, and passed the last two years. I asked if the bill goes far enough, as some advocate.
