On Tuesday, April 16th, a committee of New York Assembly lawmakers approved a bill to legalize marijuana for medical needs. If the bill should eventually pass into law, New York State would join several other US states where doctors are certified to authorize marijuana use for patients with serious medical conditions. This week on BTR Pulse, Lauren Hawker asks people in New York their thoughts on making medical marijuana available and whether there are benefits in legalizing marijuana for recreational use.
