New York State Officially Allows For Medical Marijuana
Thursday was the day when New York State allowed the use of medical marijuana
Fox 40 has covered the efforts of a Johnson City dispensary to get up and running. Thursday, we learned that New York City's first medical marijuana dispensary opened its doors. While polls show growing support for in the state medical marijuana, residents like Dave Buchanan of Binghamton remain skeptical the benefits outweigh the possible risks.
"It's kind of a see saw battle, I mean if they can regulate it and keep it under control. But I don't think it's going to happen," said Buchanan.
Remember, patients must be medically certified to be served at these dispensary locations.
