According to statements made today by New York State health commissioner Howard Zucker, the report's authors have concluded that "a regulated, legal marijuana program [ought to] be available to adults in the state".

On Monday, the Cuomo's office says the governor "will review the report" when he receives it. In response, Nixon accused Cuomo of using the issue "to distract from a corruption trial of a close associate".

"We've grown the program over the course of time", Zucker said.

It's unclear on how the state will move forward with the recommendation.

Don't count on legal weed just yet, however. Lawmakers must approve any legalization proposal but plan to adjourn for the year this week.

Earlier this year, Governor Cuomo, who had been opposed to recreational marijuana, said the "facts have changed" because neighboring states are moving to legalize the drug.

Several Democrats including Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Nixon have said any legalization effort in NY must be accompanied by proposals to expunge the criminal records of thousands of people arrested for possessing small amounts of the drug dating back decades.

The former leader of Cuomo's economic development efforts, Dr. Alain Kaloyeros, is on trial in federal district court, along with two upstate developers, on bid-rigging charges.

"There are serious questions to be answered about marijuana; they should be answered by serious people without a political agenda", said Katy Delgado, the spokeswoman for Republican gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro.

The program allows patients to use non-smokeable forms of marijuana.

"So that means if an individual is taking prescription opioids, they could take medical marijuana as part of the program that we are pushing forward to hopefully come off prescription opioids as well", Zucker continued.
