NY Gov. Cuomo says he will sign medical marijuana

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he will sign medical marijuana legislation into law as long as the measure "makes sense."
While the Senate considers medical marijuana legislation, the Democrat on Monday said he would sign the measure if it includes proper regulation of the drug.
The so-called Compassionate Care Act was amended for the third time Friday. It cleared a hurdle last month by passing the Republican-led Senate health committee, but it still has to pass the finance committee before being brought to a floor vote.
Sponsoring Sen. Diane Savino hopes to pass the legislation within the next two weeks.
Cuomo says he doesn't expect the Legislature to pass any major initiatives.
