New York is set to legalize medicinal marijuana as Governor Andrew Cuomo has reached a deal with lawmakers on the Compassionate Care Act. The bill's regulations are more conservative than the lax rules of other states who have legalized cannabis for medical purposes. Specifically, it only allows people to vaporize the drug, or to consume it in food while restricting them from smoking it. Additionally, only certain diseases will qualify for prescriptions. We take a look at the bill and why many supporters are calling this a historic victory, in this Lip News clip with Gabriel Mizrahi.
