medical marijuana is coming to ny but you wont be able to put that in your pipe and smoke it

Big news, everyone!

New York was poised to become the 23rd state to legalize medical marijuana after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this past week that he and other state lawmakers had reached a deal to make it so, but someone might have stolen their thunder

It's still cool! However, there is a caveat. The bill will prohibit smoking marijuana, but rather will apply strictly to edibles, pills, and vaporized marijuana.

The prohibition of smoking the green herb was a major sticking point for Cuomo and his administration.

Here is what Mr. Cuomo said during his historic announcement:

New York Town Clerk Refuses To Sign Same-Sex Marriage Licenses!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitik

Awful. And when it comes down to it, just truly sad.

Despite the state of New York legalizing same-sex marriage, a town clerk in Cayuga County, New York, has refused to sign the licenses, and has asked that she be be allowed to let a deputy take over the job.

According to a citizen in the town:

“Ledyard Town Clerk Rose Marie Belforti submitted a letter to the Ledyard Town Board saying that her religious beliefs prevented her from signing marriage licenses for same-sex couples and the board discussed Belforti’s letter at Monday’s meeting, according to John Binns, a member of the town board.”

Ugh. Absolutely deplorable.

The law is the LAW, lady! If you don't like it, work somewhere else!

Luckily, that seems to also Gov. Andrew Cuomo's opinion on the matter, as he's stated publicly that if town clerks cannot follow the legislation, then they need to leave their posts!

Good! Have fun trying to find another job in this economy, gurl!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

Gov. Andrew Cuomo Pushes Gay Marriage Campaign In NY

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

We can DO this!

Governor Andrew Cuomo began a campaign this week to legalize gay marriage in New York.

He's planning on using a strategy that will go on a much different path than the similar bill, which failed in the state two years ago.

Attempting to avoid poor legislative and political planning, like the first time around, Cuomo has assembled a group of A-list political strategists and several gay rights groups to back his campaign.

A spokesman for the governor says:

"This is an important issue for the administration, and the governor is committed to working with New Yorkers to get the marriage equality legislation passed."

Cuomo has made this campaign his "mission" and "feels this is part of where New York should be — at the forefront."

Ross Levi of the Empire State Pride Agenda adds:

"We are going to garner all the resources we can. A strong united community working together is going to be a great asset in accomplishing our goal."

We are proud of Andrew Cuomo's efforts to legalize gay marriage in New York. Good luck to you and all your supporters. We're rooting for you.
