We asked some Queens residents what they thought of Governor Andrew Cuomo's plan to make medical marijuana legal in the state.

I think it’s a great idea for those who need it for medical reasons because it’s supposed to help with pain and improve living. I believe this is a necessary step, as long as the use of medical marijuana is contained.
Bridget Delaney

I could understand him legalizing it for medical purposes.  It’s just a matter of control so that those who are using it for other reasons do not get their hands on it.
Louisa Samolis

Personally, I think legalizing it is a good idea, people are already using it anyway so making it legal is something that needed to be done, since other states in the country have also legalized it.
Demos Samolis

It’s about time, and I believe he hasn’t done enough with it yet.
Walter Klimetz

I believe that medical marijuana is a good drug for people who need it, and thanks to Governor Cuomo these people are now able to get it.
Michele Dregei

I think medical marijuana is beneficial for patients in need of it and it’s about time Governor Cuomo did something about it.
Mary Jacobini

Legalizing medical marijuana is good and bad:  it’s good for those who need it, but bad if it’s introduced to the wrong person who can’t handle it and takes it in the wrong context.  So, this has to be handled very carefully.
Grace Thomas

If it’s something that a doctor is prescribing to the patient because it’s going to help them feel better, then yes, I believe this is beneficial. But, if a person is using the excuse that it is for medical reasons and using it for recreational purposes, then I think it can be a bad thing.
