Don’t take my advice, you never wanted the nice boys anyway.
(NYPost) Here’s a little-known fact to give sick folks high hopes — New York already has a law on the books to dispense marijuana to cancer patients.
The medical-marijuana law was approved by the state Legislature and then-Gov. Hugh Carey in 1980 following an emotional appeal from brain-cancer patient Antonio Olivieri, a former state Assembly member and City Council member from Manhattan who lobbied legislators from his hospital bed.
The law — called the “Antonio G. Olivieri Controlled Substance Therapeutic Research Program” — authorizes hospitals to administer pot to cancer and glaucoma patients for medicinal purposes upon receiving approval by medical review boards. It even specifies that marijuana would be obtained by the State Police.
“In my personal experience, it [marijuana] was really the only thing during one course of chemotherapy that allowed me to combat nausea and keep eating,” Olivieri said. He died shortly after the law was passed.
Carey’s administration never implemented the law — Article 33-A, Chapter 810 of New York’s Public Health Law.
But now, supporters of the push to legalize marijuana are seeing green again.
