ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he will sign medical marijuana legislation into law as long as the measure ``makes sense.''

While the Senate considers medical marijuana legislation, the Democrat on Monday said he would sign the measure if it includes proper regulation of the drug.

The so-called Compassionate Care Act was amended for the third time Friday. It cleared a hurdle last month by passing the Republican-led Senate health committee, but it still has to pass the finance committee before being brought to a floor vote.

Sponsoring Sen. Diane Savino hopes to pass the legislation within the next two weeks.

Cuomo says he doesn't expect the Legislature to pass any major initiatives.
