A Syracuse Doctor initially skeptical of Governor Cuomo's medical marijuana plan is now embracing what appears to be a closely monitored, research-based model.
Doctor Jeffrey Sneider is an internist at Brighton Medical Associates, and represents a 10 county region for the Medical Society of New York. Sneider says he's still learning the details, but so far likes the limited scope of the program.
Sneider says large-scale studies on the risks and benefits of medical marijuana are sorely lacking, and hopes this generates useful information. Governor Cuomo is expected to explain his plan in more detail during Wednesday's state of the state address.
