New York State has finally legalized medical marijuana, at least for a limited number of health-related conditions. Assemblymember Dick Gottfried traces the history of that important legislation. State Senator Liz Krueger presents us with the possibility of a law allowing marijuana usage for all adults in New York State. In addition, we will discuss the practical challenges of setting up medical marijuana dispensaries, plus examine the many ways in which current day prohibition strains our legal system and rips apart our social fabric.
Light refreshments will be served.
Free and open to all.
