New York State Is Set to Loosen Marijuana Laws

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo plans to announce an executive action that would allow limited use of medical marijuana, moving the state a step closer to policies embraced by advocates and lawmakers elsewhere.

ALBANY — Joining a growing group of states that have loosened restrictions on marijuana, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York plans this week to announce an executive action that would allow limited use of the drug by those with serious illnesses, state officials say.

The shift by Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat who had long resisted legalizing medical marijuana, comes as other states are taking increasingly liberal positions on it — most notably Colorado, where thousands have flocked to buy the drug for recreational use since it became legal on Jan. 1.
