Capitol Pressroom

Dec. 9, 2016: Ashley Hupfl, Glenn Balin, Medical Marijuana, Plan 2014, Martin Babinec

Ashley Hupfl shared this week’s Winners and Losers from City & State.

So will there be a special session or not? New York Daily News reporter Glenn Blain joined us with the latest.

The State’s Department of Health has announced more proposed changes to the medical marijuana program. Josh Vinciguerra of the DOH Medical Marijuana Program stopped by the hut to explain.

We discussed why the approval of Plan 2014 is being lauded by conservationists and business people across New York. We hosted two advocates deeply concerned about the future of the St. Lawrence River – Lee Willbanks, Upper St. Lawrence Riverkeeper & Executive Director of Save the River, and Tony David, Regis Mohawk Tribe Water Resources Program Manager.

And we caught up with Martin Babinec – who wore his venture capitalist hat this time, and not his Congressional candidate hat.
