WKBW – New York State looks into a green initiative that patients and doctors say could help countless victims of people living with severe sicknesses. The state is considering legalizing the use of medical marijuana. The New York Assembly Health Committee will meet today at Buffalo City Hall. This new bill would set up an initiative, allowing a tightly regulated and controlled medical system. It would also allow seriously ill patients a small dosage of marijuana as long as their healthcare provider gives both approval and supervision.
