NY Legislature's last week: min. wage, medical pot

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- The fate of medical marijuana, a higher minimum wage and efforts to combat heroin addiction are set to be decided as New York lawmakers enter their final week of work during this year's regular session.

Legislators will return to Albany on Monday and are expected to consider hundreds of bills before Thursday's planned adjournment.

One high-profile bill would raise the starting wage from $8 to $10.10 and let cities like New York City set a local minimum wage of up to $13.13 an hour.

Supporters of medical marijuana hope to secure a deal with Gov. Andrew Cuomo and for top lawmakers to clear the way for passage.

Finally, lawmakers hope to pass legislation to combat opiate addiction, though some say they're wary of proposals to strengthen criminal drug penalties.
