"Marijuana will be legalized if a doctor authorizes and finds the condition of PTSD for a veteran", Cuomo told the crowd gathered in Manhattan.

Even though NY has legalized medical marijuana for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs won't help them get the drug.

Cuomo believes adding PTSD to the list will help thousands of veterans. By ensuring access to our medical marijuana products to those suffering from PTSD, we hope to take one step closer to fulfilling our mission of improving people lives. Virtually every state in the country with a medical marijuana program allows for treatment of PTSD.

State Senator Diane Savino, who wrote the bill, was pleased with the outcome.

"I commend Gov. Cuomo for taking action to support our residents and veterans, and signing legislation that will help remedy a number of serious conditions affecting New Yorkers in communities across the state".

"What we've said to the veterans is we appreciate your service and when you come back home we'll be there for you".
