A00582 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A582
 
SPONSOR: Rosenthal
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to adding dysmenorrhea to the list of conditions covered for lawful medical use of marihuana   PURPOSE: This bill adds dysmenorrhea to the list of conditions for which a doctor may authorize medical marijuana use.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one amends subparagraph (i) of paragraph (a) of subdivision 7 of section 3360 of the public health law. Section two sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Every month, women experience pain and discomfort associated with menstruation. In severe cases, this pain can be debilitating, further limiting a woman's ability to perform daily activities. Medical marijua- na can alleviate many of the painful effects of dysmenorrhea. This bill will provide women with access to a means of treating dysme- norrhea by adding dysmenorrhea to the list of conditions for which a doctor may authorize medical marijuana use. Not only will this improve women's wellness and productivity during menstruation, but it will also advance New York State in one of the country's fastest-growing indus- tries.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately, provided, however, that the amendments to section 3360 of the public health law made by section one of this act shall not affect the repeal of such section and shall be deemed repealed therewith.
