ALBANY – A push to legalize marijuana in New York took a step forward.

State lawmakers are trying to find agreement on how to address the issue of people driving under the influence of the drug.

State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins says that obstacle has now been overcome.

“I think we are really, really close on marijuana. We have gotten past the impasse of the impaired driving,” said Stewart-Cousins. “And, we are looking to get the language that I think will be satisfactory in the next day or so.”

The Majority Leader says the state may provide funding to train law enforcement officers how to detect when a driver is impaired by marijuana; a critical point of the bill local Senator George Borrello has been pushing for.
