WATCH: Battle for medical marijuana sites - this week on New York Now

Jun 19, 2015



This week in our latest Innovation Trail report, Jenna Flanagan visits one downstate company hoping to grow and distribute medical marijuana after the state passed legislation allowing it last year.

New York's decision has companies from all over the country (let alone the state) trying to get one of the five licenses the state will grant this summer.  The Department of Health wants the facilities, once they're named, to be up and running by January 2016. Video preview after the jump.



Watch our preview clip above and tune in to your local PBS station this week for the full story and coverage of the last scheduled week of the legislative session.
