The debate for and against legalized marijuana is getting more attention this week here in Western New York.

There has been a series of "listening sessions" around the state and one will take place on Wednesday in the Buffalo area.

According to a post from the Governor's office:

The purpose of these sessions is to garner input from community members and key stakeholders on the implementation of a regulated marijuana program in New York State. This input will assist the Regulated Marijuana Workgroup in drafting legislation for an adult-use marijuana program for the legislature to consider in the upcoming session.

This week's meeting/session will take place on Wednesday and you will need to register to attend.
