A meeting underway Thursday evening is giving the public the chance to weigh in on legalizing recreational marijuana in New York.
Participants were allowed to speak for two minutes each to give their opinion. The work group will consider all viewpoints.
Thursday’s meeting is just one of a series of meeting being held throughout the state. The latest meeting took place in Buffalo Wednesday night, where hundreds of western New Yorkers weighed in.
Some said they are in favor this; others said they fear legalizing marijuana could lead to addiction issues and repercussions in the workplace.
Organizers of this event told us what’s going to happen with the information they get tonight and at other sessions.
