A mother and her two daughters who run the only women-owned medical marijuana dispensary in the state say it's time for New York to legalize recreational marijuana.
Amy, Hillary and Keely Peckham operate Etain Health in Yonkers.
"I definitely think that's where we're heading. If you look at Massachusetts, which is a bordering state, they've already opened their recreational program and so I think it would be an opportunity, an economic one at that, for New York state,” says Hillary Peckham.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo told WNYC public radio Tuesday that he would like to see legalization before the end of the year, but “New Jersey was going to legalize it. New Jersey stopped. I think that started the shift in the political environment. I don't believe...the senators say on the record that they don't have the votes to pass it politically."
