Carl Paladino may be a (possibly) racist, homophobic, Manhattan-hating moron, but he does have one thing on Andrew Cuomo: he said he wanted the issue of medical marijuana to be put to a referendum, according to the Daily News. Cuomo, on the other hand, recently told reporters that under his administration legalization wouldn't stand a chance. "The dangers of medical marijuana outweigh the benefits," said Cuomo. "I don't think the bill passes." But is the risk of Paladino in office worth the chance at a legal smoke?

When asked about state revenues that could be generated by the legalization of marijuana, Cuomo responded, "A lot of things could raise revenues. Legalizing prostitution could raise revenues. I'm against that, too." A recent study showed that 50% of New Yorkers support the legalization of medical marijuana, but Cuomo isn't afraid of his stance's effect on his ratings, and plans to let Paladino continue to run his mouth all the way to election day. "The more the opposition talks, the better we look," Cuomo said. And if Cuomo does get elected and medical marijuana is off the table, the city's glaucoma sufferers can just find their sweet medicine on the streets.
