Fate of Laree's Law still uncertain

When a person dies of a drug overdose in New York, the dealers or traffickers who supplied the drugs involved may face drug charges, but are generally not held legally responsible for the person’s death. This could change if Laree's Law, which has already passed the Senate, passes the New York Assembly.  Laree's Law would apply to drug dealers and traffickers who distribute opiates which result in a drug user's death. The proposed law - named for Laree Farrell Lincoln, a teen who died in 2013 of a drug overdose - comes in response to the ongoing opioid epidemic in the United States.

Will marijuana be legal in New York?

Following in the steps of 10 other states that have made moves to legalize recreational use of marijuana, New York State now has a bill in the Senate Finance Committee that would legalize marijuana for adults over the age of 21. The bill would also establish an office that would oversee both recreational and medical marijuana use.
