Take Action to End the War on Drugs

In June 2014, New York became the 23rd state with a medical marijuana law. DPA's New York policy office worked with allies across the state to bring the voices of patients, providers and caregivers to the legislature and governor's office. The bill passed and was signed despite significant opposition from leaders in Albany. Although the bill has limitations, if implemented well and quickly could help thousands of New Yorkers with serious illnesses and debilitating conditions.
