Ceretto: Marijuana Not The Prescription For New York

June 13, 2012
Assemblyman John Ceretto (R,I-Lewiston) today released a statement explaining his vote against Assembly bill 7347-B, which would legalize medical marijuana.

“The medical benefits of marijuana are not immediately clear, and the vague nature of this bill presents the possibility of abuse, placing our state’s children at greater risk. There are several alternative medications that already provide the relief those with chronic illnesses need and deserve. The approval of this bill only opens up our society to unnecessary risk and is not the right solution for helping the seriously ill.”
