AN ACT to amend the public health law, the tax law, the general business
  law and the penal law, in relation to medical use of marihuana

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that
thousands of New Yorkers have serious medical  conditions  that  can  be
improved  by  medically-approved  use  of  marihuana. The law should not
stand between them and treatment necessary for  life  and  health.  This
legislation follows the well-established public policy that a controlled
substance  can have a legitimate medical use. Many controlled substances
that are legal for medical use (such as morphine and steroids) are ille-
gal for any other use. The purposes of article 33 of the  public  health
law  include  allowing legitimate use of controlled substances in health
care, including palliative care. This policy and this legislation do not
in any way diminish New York  state's  strong  public  policy  and  laws
against illegal drug use, nor should it be deemed in any manner to advo-
cate, authorize, promote, or legally or socially accept the use of mari-
huana  for children or adults, for any non-medical use. This legislation
is an appropriate exercise of the state's legislative power  to  protect
the  health of its people under article 17 of the state constitution and
the tenth amendment of the United States constitution.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
