MARIJUANA EXPANSION — Roughly two months into New York's implementation of its medical marijuana program, one of the sponsors of the law that launched it has introduced a package of legislation to expand it. State Sen. Diane Savino, a Democrat from Staten Island, introduced four bills that would tweak the highly restrictive program in an effort to expand access for severely ill individuals who qualify for the drug.

-SPOONFUL OF SUGAR — Reuters reports: “Britain will introduce a sugar levy on soft drinks in two years' time to tackle a growing obesity crisis, finance minister George Osborne said in a surprise announcement on Wednesday, delighting health campaigners and angering drink makers. Just months after the government ruled out a sugar tax, Osborne said the levy, which would be imposed on companies and based on the sugar content in drinks, would raise about 500 million pounds ($704 million) annually.” http://reut.rs/1STPWFp

** A message from The Healthcare Education Project: What’s a Health Insurance Guaranty Fund? It protects patients and healthcare providers if a health insurance plan goes broke. 49 states have one. New York is the only state that doesn’t. The recent failure of Health Republic left consumers scrambling for new coverage, and hospitals and doctors statewide are still owed hundreds of millions for care they already provided. We need a Guaranty Fund to protect patients and healthcare providers before it’s too late.
The New York State Legislature should create a Health Insurance Guaranty Fund to ensure that families keep their coverage and healthcare providers aren’t left with massive unpaid bills. To learn more, visit: www.nyguarantyfund.org **
