    NEW YORK: New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) that he will authorize the medical use of marijuana, making his the 21st United States state to do so and one of the biggest. Cuomo, a Democrat who has in the past opposed such a measure, announced a limited pilot program to serve the state of 19.5 million people. Cuomo argued that research has suggested marijuana, which is widely but illegally used recreationally, can help patients “manage the pain and treatment of cancer and other serious illnesses.
