Advocates: Cuomo trying to kill medical marijuana bill

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is trying to kill a proposal

Published: Updated:

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is trying to kill a proposal to legalize medical marijuana by throwing out last-minute demands and delaying negotiations during the final days of the 2014 legislative session, advocates said Wednesday.

Advocates, who have been traveling to Albany for months to generate support for medical marijuana, said the issue has majority support in the state Senate and Assembly. At a raucous State Capitol rally, they said Cuomo, a Democrat who is up for re-election, waited until the last week of the session to specify his objections in order to run out the legislative clock and postpone action on the issue this year.

The Legislature is set to adjourn for the year on Thursday.
