Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a radio interview on Monday said his concerns over a bill that would allow for medical marijuana stem from the fear that if done wrong, such a system would create “havoc” and a “public health disaster.”

Cuomo is in three-way negotiations with state lawmakers over the legislation, but Sen. Diane Savino, one of the key backers of the bill, knocked the governor for leaking his problems with the bill to The Daily News this morning.

Cuomo, however, says he remains open to negotiating the bill even after hearing problems raised from both the State Police and officials in the state Department of Health.

Cuomo told Susan Arbetter on The Capitol Pressroom he has been consulting State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico on the issue as well as DOH officials.

“The State Police have serious concerns about the bill,” Cuomo said in the interview. “Department of Health professionals have serious concerns about the bill.”

His main concerns over the legislation known as the Compassionate Care Act include allowing patients to smoke the drug, as well as the availability of marijuana to those who are not sick.

“It’s not necessarily the best program from a public safety, public health put of view,” Cuomo said.

But despite his concerns, Cuomo did not rule out waiving the three-day aging process should an agreement come together on medical marijuana after today. Lawmakers are due to conclude the legislative session on Thursday.

“I would consider doing a message of necessity, yes,” Cuomo said.

The governor added he is due to meet with top lawmakers in the Legislature to discuss the bill.
