“New York military veterans and others diagnosed with post-traumatic stress will now be able to enter the state’s medical marijuana program. Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Veterans Day signed legislation that adds PTSD to the list of qualifying health disorders for medical cannabis, according to an AP report. ‘Our veterans risked their lives in order to defend the ideals and principles that this nation was founded upon and it is our duty to do everything we can to support them when they return home,’ Cuomo said. New York joins Arizona, Colorado, and Illinois as states that legally allow PTSD patients to use marijuana as medicine.” (11/13/17)
