ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) – New York lawmakers say the state’s new medical marijuana program won’t be up and running until 2016. They met with medical marijuana advocates over the weekend.
This past summer, New York became the 23rd state to legalize marijuana for patients with conditions such as AIDS, cancer and epilepsy.
As new markets open up for medical marijuana, a Clarence-based company is hoping to establish itself in the U.S. and across the globe. The 22nd Century Group is the first and currently only publicly traded company focused on tobacco and cannibis.
